This is my go-to cookie recipe for when someone needs a snack, pick-me-up, or some neighborly encouragement. 🙂
Thanks to my sister for discovering the all-time favorite combination of add-ins.
I highly recommend the book where we got the original inspiration for this recipe… Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook.
White Chip Craisin Cookies
Makes: 36-48… depending on how much dough you eat.
- 1/2 c Butter, softened
- 1/2 c Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 c Brown Sugar, packed
- 1/2 t Baking Powder
- 1/4 t Baking Soda
- 1 Egg
- 1+ t Vanilla (we always put in extra…)
- 1 1/4 c All-Purpose Flour
- 1 c Rolled Oats
- 1 c Craisins (dried cranberries)
- 1 c White Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375F.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter on high for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping down the sides at least once. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined. Add in the flour, then the oats. Depending on your mixer, you may have to switch to stirring by hand. Now, add the craisins and white chocolate chips.
Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet by rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the edges are light brown and the centers are set. Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet about 1 minute before transferring them to wire racks.
