Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Delights
You will need:
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oatmeal (I use half quick and half old-fashioned oats)
1 1/2 flour (I do half white, half wheat flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 bag (3oz.) dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs and almond extract, mix well. Combine the oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until well combined. Add in the dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and pecans. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
Another thing that I have added to these are a handful of coconut and then I have drizzled a simple butter frosting over the tops. These are great to give as a gift or to hide them for yourselves. They aren't real sweet, so you shouldn't feel guilty eating more than one. I always keep mine in the freezer for they seem to last a bit longer and they stay fresher.
If you come up with a new creation for these yummy cookies, let me know.
I love hearing new ideas!!
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
