Makes about 5 dozen

Indulge in these white chocolate chip-oatmeal cookies for a fresh twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookie.  Crunchy pecans balance out the white chocolate chips' sweetness. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until yellow disappears after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Step 2

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in oats, morsels, and pecans. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 3 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

These are delicious cookies. I took them to a 4th of July party and they disappeared so quickly. I didn't change a thing with the ingredients. They are a rich tasting cookie.

Delicious. Great texture once cooled. Slightly crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Easy to make. Followed recipe as written, just added some dark chocolate chunks as well. Definitely a keeper.

These cookies are good but a bit too sweet (for my taste). If I make them again, I will use 1/4 less of both sugars and about 1/2 as many white chocolate chips. Perhaps I would substitute cranberries for half the chips???

The dough was a bit stiff and I wondered if they'd be hard, dry lumps, but baked for no excess time, they're about perfect- crunchy, yet slightly chewy inside. I made a few minor changes- whole wheat flour in lieu of one of the three cups and addition of chopped dried cherries (will increase to a full cup next time and reduce white chips a bit). The real "upgrade" was toasting the pecans and the oatmeal. An excellent baker friend once told me toasting nuts ALWAYS makes a recipe better. I decided to follow her advice on these cookies and I think it worked. My co-workers gave them high marks today. I am taking the other half of the batch (nice large quantity of cookies from this recipe, by the way) to a birthday potluck in a few minutes, and we'll see if they score as well there. My suspicion is that there will be no leftovers to bring home!

These are very good! They have a nice soft, butter cookie texture with a little oatmeal and lots of yummy white chocolate chips. I have made these exactly according to the recipe once, and added dried cranberries once - both were good! They are definitely on my holiday baking list from now on!

These cookies are great. Have made several times and always turn out perfectly. However, its is a challenge to get all of the oatmeal and chips incorporated and I do not even add the nuts!
