WHITE CHOC., CHERRY, MAC., ALMOND, OATS COOKIE


WHITE CHOCOLATE, CHERRY, MACADAMIA and TOASTED ALMOND

in an OLD FASHIONED CHOCOLATE CHIP OATMEAL COOKIE

i know, long name for a little crispy chewy disc, but this recipe is a big winner. actually the recipe i'm talking about is a great base to anything you want. i found this recipe at bigoven.com.

i was on the mad hunt one day to find a cookie that basically had a regular chocolate chip cookie flavor, but with a little oatmeal in it. why?..i don't know. in the back of my mind i was thinking a little oatmeal would make it a little healthy..right?... well, so many that i ran across were just oatmeal-chocolate chip. i wanted a chocolate chip with oatmeal...make sense?

i'll bet if you weren't told there was oatmeal in it you wouldn't even know...
well, maybe if you're a cookie expert.

so there's no need to really go on and on...i linked in the recipe (again) so please try it out. i found it to make about 90 cookies. maybe because i add so much/many extras. for this combo that i just made i added 1c. slightly chopped roasted macadamias, 1 c. white choc. chips, 3/4 c. dried cherries, and approx. 1/2 c. toasted slivered almonds. sounds like alot, but as you can see, this recipe can take it. also i didn't have quick oats so i just threw in regular oatmeal and that worked great, couldn't tell the diff. i think a while bake i did almonds and butterscotch chips. i think i might try something with apricot next.
so try it out, let me know what flavor combos you come up with...
