White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


Submitted by:

Preparation time:



1 cup butter

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

2 ˝ cups old fashioned oats

˝ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

12 ounces white chocolate chips (Ghiradelli if available)

1 ˝ cups toasted chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 375 F. Cream butter and sugars together, beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir together flour, oats, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix into wet ingredients until well blended. Stir on white chocolate chips and nuts. Shape into golf-ball sized balls (I use a medium ice cream scoop); bake on ungreased cookie sheet (at least 3 inches apart) for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown around edges and set in the middle. Cookies will appear underdone – do not overbake! Remove from oven, cool on sheet 1-2 minutes then remove to wire rack or parchment to cool.


Very, very rich. So good…
