How about that for a loaded cookie?! Last week, I could not decide what snack I wanted to make and these cookies seemed to have it all. They bake up high, so the cookie is almost rounded at the top. All those ingredients in one little cookie gives it great texture and flavors. Great for days when plain old chocolate chip won't do!
White Chocolate Chip Cherry Oatmeal Cookies
1 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (I used instant)
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups white chocolate, coursely chopped or white chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried cherries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the dry ingredients together starting with flour and ending with salt. Set aside.
Using a mixer, beat the butter in a large mixing bowl until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar and mix until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture in three steps. Stir in the white chocolate and dried cherries.
Scoop out walnut sized mounds of cookie dough and place on cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are a light golden brown. Place on cooling racks and store in airtight containers.
