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.

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!

Best cookies ever! My family likes a bigger cookie so I doubled the size. Really great!

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???

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!

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.
