Craisin White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie
- ½ cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
- ¾ cup packed light brown (or golden brown) sugar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg (room temperature)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp molasses
- 1 ⅔ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¾ cup Craisins
- ¾ cup white chocolate chips
- Using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer (or you can use a hand mixer) set to medium speed, cream together butter and both sugars.
- Add the egg and mix on high until combined (about 1 minute).
- Scrape the bowl, add the vanilla and molasses, and mix on high until combined.
- In a separate medium bowl, toss together the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients on low speed until combined.
- Fold in the craisins and white chocolate chips with a spoon or spatula (dough will be thick).
- Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
- Using a 3 tbsp ice cream scoop (do not fill to capacity), roll dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
- Bake for 10-11 minutes, until very lightly browned on the edges. The centers will look soft.
- Allow them to sit on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack.
- Cookie dough can stay in fridge for up to 4 days.
- Baked cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months.
- Unbaked cookie dough balls can be frozen for up to 3 months. Bake frozen for an extra minute, no need to thaw.
