White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I haven't taken anything to work in a while. I was bored today and although we are suffering with triple digit heat I decided to bake! Well, crank the A/C down a bit and pretend it's not sweltering and voila cookies are done. I found this recipe on I think the addition of some toasted coconut and/or craisins would have given them a bit more flavor but I went with what I had on hand.


1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
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
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the creamed mixture. Add the oats, white chocolate chips and pecans. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.
