You HAVE to try these!

White Chocolate Chip, Cranberry, Oatmeal Biscuits - from Julesong at RecipeZaar

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened - or 125gms
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oat (not instant)
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup ounces white chocolate chips
  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 190ÂșC.
    2. In a large bowl using an electric mixer combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter; mix well to cream together.
    3. Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
    4. Add the cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well.
    5. Fold in the oatmeal, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips- making sure that all ingredients are uniformly distributed.
    6. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 3 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes, just until the edges are lightly golden.
    7. Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer cookies to cooling rack.
    I took them out at 10 minutes - they looked totally underdone but upon sitting on their pretty silicon sheet covered tray for a few minutes - they are the PERFECT combination of crispy on the edges and chewy texture in the middle. Truly, promise me you will whip these up, you won't regret it! Even though I'm not the biggest cinnamon fan, I stayed true to the recipe and it is divine. Really, my bum is growing just thinking about them. I might have to try another one, just to make sure they're not poisonous....
