White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

My blog has been seriously neglected lately. I just haven't had an occasion to bake anything. I thought it was time to take something to work though and was in a baking mood. I was looking online for a recipe for ingredients I had on hand and came across this one on All Recipes. I've not been eating sugar for several weeks, so I'll have to take them to the 'taste testers' at work and hope for good reviews.

WHITE CHOCOLATE OATMEAL COOKIES

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups white chocolate chips (I used a bar of White Ghiardelli chocolate chopped up)
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the rolled oats, white chocolate, and pecans. Drop by tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. (These took about 14 minutes in my oven). Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. I got 5 dozen cookies from this recipe.

Thank goodness you have had an urge to bake again Anj. These cookies are truly "eye candy".

Hey Risa: Thanks for stopping by. I think these were a hit. Everyone seemed to enjoy them and the dish was empty when I came home.

I can't imagine these not tasting good. They sound wonderful.

It's hard not eating sugar. I admire you. I feel like I've been over doing it lately. I'm on the way to diabetes, I know it.

Glad you're back! Those cookies look fab. (And what are your hints for avoiding sugar?! It's my downfall. That and bread. Sigh.)
