|take a bite!|
I just had to bake today because I hadn't baked in over a week and I was feeling deprived! I hadn't made cookies in awhile - and usually my go to are chocolate chip or some variation with chocolate chips in them...but in my pantry I noticed a forgotten bag of white chocolate discs which I had purchased from bulk barn awhile ago. So I decided to go with the white chocolate...which tends to be quite sweet, so the dried cherries are a perfect tart compliment.
what you need:
*makes 18 large cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup whole rolled oats (not the quick cooking kind)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup dried cherries
- 3/4 cup white chocolate discs
what to do:
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Using a paddle attachment of a mixer, or electric beaters, cream together butter and sugars in a large bowl, until smooth and well mixed.
- Add egg and vanilla, beat for 1-2 minutes.
- Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add rolled oats. Add these dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture. Mix until incorporated.
- Chop white chocolate discs into halves. Add chocolate and cherries to cookie dough, mix.
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, drop large spoonfuls of cookie dough, 6 per cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Cookies may look slightly undercooked in the centre, but lightly golden browned on the outside. Don't worry, this will keep them chewy/soft in the centre and they will continue to cook a little as they cool on the pan. When they are cool enough to handle, transfer them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
