White Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Put a twist on classic oatmeal raisin cookies by adding white chocolate morsels and a bit of orange extract. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon fiori di sicilia or orange extract
  • 1 cup uncooked regular oats
  • 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup raisins or golden raisins

Preparation

  • Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Beat in egg and orange flavoring just until combined. Add flour mixture and oats; stir until blended. Stir in white chocolate and raisins. Cover and chill dough 1 hour, if desired.
  • Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls, 3″ apart, onto prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
