White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are loaded with white chocolate chips and pecans and flavored with a touch of cinnamon.
They have that soft and chewy texture that’s so characteristic of oatmeal cookies and they only take 10 to 12 minutes to bake.
What Type of Oats To Use?
Either quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats can be used. Old-fashioned will result in heartier, chewier texture.
Equipment Needed For White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
- Electric Mixer- either hand-held or stand mixer.
- Parchment Paper
- 2 Baking Sheets
- Wire Rack
Be sure to measure the flour correctly. Fluff it up in the bag or container, scoop it with a spoon into a dry measuring cup, and then level it with the back of a knife. Correctly measuring the flour helps prevent dry cookies.
Be careful not to overmix the cookie dough when you add the flour or you will have tough cookies. Just mix on LOW until all of the flour is incorporated.
Use an Ice Cream Scoop
To quickly form uniform-shaped cookies, use a medium spring-loaded ice cream scoop.
For extra flavor, add about 1/2 cup of Craisins.
Store cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for 5 to 6 days.
