White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

white chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

So, I want to ask a question that might spark a huge, ugly debate . . .

What is better:
Cookie dough or a cookie?

As for me, I am totally on Team Cookie Dough.
I know that people will let me know that the eggs in the dough could be harmful,
but seriously it won’t change my mind.
I just have no control! When you put a bowl of cookie dough in front of me, I can’t help but eat a couple handfuls.
That’s right . . . I said HANDFULS. :)

By the time the cookies are finally done baking, I am so full of cookie dough that I can’t even bring myself to try a cookie.

Whether you love cookie dough or cookies, this recipe is for YOU.
The dough is divine (in my humble opinion), but my husband swears that the cookies are even better (but you don’t have to take his word for it).

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, beat together the softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix well. Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until completely incorporated. Fold in the oats and white chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets and bake for 9-12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets and let cool.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

    Cookie dough is DEFINITELY better!!! Or a Pazooki — microwaving a bit of cookie dough for about 20 seconds and then putting ice cream on top! YUM!

    Too bad my husband just found out he is gluten intolerant and dairy intolerant and egg intolerant:(

    I’m with you that it is cookie dough all the way!! Growing up, my mom and I would make cookie dough, eat it and never even make cookies. I have taught my girls the same thing, but now we have to actually make some cookies because my husband loves them cooked only. Have a great Memorial Weekend!!

    My family thought these cookies were awesome!! I thought the consistency was great. I did grind my oats in my food processor since I buy the old fashioned kind. I do that for all of my oatmeal cookie recipes though. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

      We always use instant oats. Rolled oats are bigger than instant oats and take a little longer to cook. If a recipe calls for instant oats, but you only have rolled oats, no problem. Hope this helps!

    I just whipped up a batch of these and added some Trader Joe’s pumpkin and freshly ground cinnamon. Oh my, your initial recipe was already delicious, but the extras totally kicked them up a notch!

    Yummy! Leave in the oven more like 12 mins until golden brown. I placed them on parchment paper and they are delicious. I got four full cookie sheets out of the recipe. I will definitely be baking these again.
