i feel like a pioneer on the plains when i eat these. even though i am well aware that the pioneers did not cook with luxuries like cranberries or white chocolate. still, they are simply sweet. anything that calls for old-fashioned oats (and only brown sugar) seems wholesome to me. my little family loved them.
Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Craisin Cookies
taken from the back of my ocean spray craisins package
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup or 6-ounce package Ocean Spray® Craisins® (dried cherries work too!)
2/3 cup white chocolate chips (use quality brand, i like Guittard.)
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. (Watch them close, my cookies were done at only 8 minutes.) Cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
