White Chocolate Chip cookies
Made a tasty little treat the other night! These are from Martha Stewart's Cookie Book and I just was flipping through the pages for ideas and came across this!
White chocolate, oatmeal and coconut--yum yum! The recipe does call for walnuts and raisins, which I particularly thought would have been good, but most people that I shared the cookies with would not have thought the same.
It was a quick recipe (and most of Martha's do take quite a bit of time), so hope you enjoy!
-1 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
-1/2 c. granulated sugar
-1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
-2 c. all-purpose flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1/2 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. salt
-2 c. old-fashioned rolled oats
-2 c. white chocolate chips/chunks
-1 c. sweetened coconut
-1 c. raisins (golden or regular)
-1 c. coarsely chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 mins.
Mix in eggs one at a time until combined. Stir in vanilla.
2. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl.
Gradually stir into butter mixture until combined. Stir in oats, chocolate, coconut, raisins, and walnuts.
3. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2 in. apart.
Flatten slightly. Bake cookies until golden, 12-15 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks for 2 mins. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days.
