Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Cookies
If you're looking for a healthier cookie (is there really such a thing??) this one might fit the bill. I love finding a recipe that uses ingredients I generally have in my pantry. Yes, I almost always have white chocolate chips and craisins on hand. Follow this link to some yummy scones and you'll see why!
1 stick butter Crisco
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups oats (quick or old-fashioned; old fashioned are healthier!)
11 oz package white chocolate chips
1/2 cup craisins
Beat together Crisco, sugars, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Add flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda, and mix until well combined. Stir in oats, then chips and craisins. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375F for 7-8 minutes for a chewy cookie or 9-10 minutes for a crisp one. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 4 dozen.
