Soon you will not want to heat your ovens, so I am delivering a great recipe to usher out the chilly weather and you can share as you say so long to the winter visitors. When the grandkids come, this is a great recipe for them to help make. My daughter sent me this quick and easy recipe and I make it over and over again.
Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 lg. eggs
1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (I've been using the quick oats)
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup Craisins (dried cranberries)
2/3 cups white chocolate chunks or chips (I use 1 cup of Ghirardelli’s)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
- Add eggs, mixing well.
- In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition.
- Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
- Drop by rounded measuring teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet (or line the sheet with parchment paper and there is no clean up – just rollup the paper and throw away). You can put close together as they don't spread out.
- Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
- Cool on wire rack.
Makes approximately five dozen. Just pop in your mouth and enjoy the special flavors. Be careful – once you start eating them, it is hard to stop!
