The other day I was walking around Target and saw a bag of white chocolate chips and decided I wanted to bake something. I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate, but for some reason paired with oatmeal, I thought it would be delicious. It was! I experimented with several different recipes and ended up with a yummy cookie that was a little unusual. I loved how the cookie held it’s shape, I think that was due to all the chunks of extra goodies!
Oatmeal Cookies with Raisins, White Chocolate Chips and Macadamia Nuts
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
Beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a bowl with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla; beat.
Whisk the flour, rolled oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Add to the butter mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips and raisins.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough and place on parchment-lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are golden on the bottom, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets, 10 minutes, then transfer to racks to finish cooling.
