About once a month my husband’s coworkers request these oatmeal cookies. Sometimes with raisins, but my specialty is with white chocolate. They are a huge hit at my home, work and parties.
The recipe is pretty basic, but I’ll let you in on my secret …
Crisco baking sticks
Seriously, that is all. Replacing the butter with Crisco baking sticks drastically enhances the flavor and the cookie tastes amazing!
Think I’m over exaggerating? Why don’t you go ahead and give it a try!?
Let’s break it down …
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: In a large mixer bowl, beat the Crisco baking sticks and sugars until blended well.
Step 3: Add the vanilla and eggs. Beat well until the mixture is smooth.
Step 4: In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt (optional), and cinnamon.
Step 5: Add the combined flour mixture little by little into the smooth batter and mix well.
Step 6: Add the oats and white chocolate morsels.Mix well until they are completely incorporated into the mixture.
Step 7: Prepare a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Using a tablespoon as a mold, drop small rounds of the cookie dough on to a greased cookie sheet.
These cookies typically don’t spread while baking. However, just in case your butter is extra soft, I recommend leaving about an inch between each round of dough.
Step 8: Bake the cookies for 8 minutes.
Exactly 8 minutes! No more and no less … trust me on this one.
Step 9: Let the cookies cool for a minute and transfer to a plate.
Depending on how much raw cookie dough you eat … This recipe can make about 4 dozen cookies.
You are now ready to enjoy these cookies, hopefully at your next social gathering.
