Craisen Oatmeal Cookies w.White Choc Chips_092009

I have fallen in-love with my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie recipe, I think I make them once a week.  The other day I pulled out my electric mixer and was ready to add the chocolate chips (note: that is the last thing to do before baking) when I realized–horror!–I was out of chocolate chips!  I panicked!  I could have run up the street to the grocery store, but I decided to scour my cupboards one more time.  I came up with a bag of Craisens and a half-bag of white chocolate chips.  I decided to just throw both of those in and see how things turned out.  I thought to myself, “I like Craisens.  I like white chocolate chips.  I like oatmeal cookies…it’s fail-proof,  right?”

Correct!  This is my new favorite combination for oatmeal cookies.  The white chocolate is sweeter than semi-sweet, but the tart Craisens temper it enough so as not not overload your sweet sensor.  Goodness, I think I need to go make these again!
