Oatmeal White Chocolate Craisin Cookies

Hey everyone!  Thanks so much for stopping in!  Today I have a yummy recipe to share.  I've been making cookies for quite a while.  In fact, when I first met my husband I earned the nickname of "Cookie Girl" with his friends at work.  I used to spend a lot of my teenage Sunday afternoons baking up a few batches and delivering plates to neighbors, grandparents and well...cute boys!

For whatever reason I always had trouble with oatmeal cookies.  They never really turned out quite how I wanted them.  Well the search is over my friends!  (Insert lyrics from the song by Survivor here)  
"How can I convince you...I was living for a dream..."  You get the idea.  

So here you go (click on the recipe title for printable recipe):



Ingredients:
  • 1-1/2 cups flour                                     
  • 1 tsp baking soda   
  • 1 tsp cinnamon                                                                    
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves                            
  • 1/2 tsp salt                                            
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats   
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup Craisins
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips 
                                                             
Directions: Combine dry ingredients and set aside.  Cream together butter, shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla until smooth.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir in oats, Craisins & white chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes and let cool on the pan for another two minutes. 


Now go bake yourselves some cookies!
