Tasty Tuesday: White Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A twist on an old classic. You get tartness from the raisins, and sweet from the White Chocolate Chips. This recipe will yield about 3 to 4 dozen cookies, depending on the size.
1/2 pound of Butter (use butter not Margarine, its the holidays)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 tsp of Vanilla
1/1/2 cups of All Pourpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt (I use Kosher)
3 cups of Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 cup Raisins
1 cup White Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 dregrees
Mix the butter and both sugars togeter until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix until loose.
In a seperate bowl add flour, baking soda, cinnimon and salt and mix or sift well.
Add to egg and sugar mixture, mix until smooth.
Add oats and mix until incorporated.
Remove from mixer and fold in raisins and white chocolate chips by hand. (This will prevent the raisins from getting all mashed up and the chips will keep thier shape)
You can drop onto a baking sheet pan with a spoon or I use a small ice cream scoop (about 1.5 ounces) to form the cookies.
Bake until the edges just turn light brown, about 10 minutes.
Cool on a cooling rack and enjoy with a cold glass of milk or hot coffee. I hear Santa likes the cookies ;-)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!
