Salted Vanilla Oatmeal Cookies with white chocolate mixed in for a decadent oatmeal cookie.
You may be sick of cookies from the Holidays, but I have been craving them. I love vanilla but am not a fan of white chocolate unless it’s good quality white chocolate. This recipe called for Lindt white chocolate, but I couldn’t find it so I used Giardelli white chocolate bars. The
white chocolate chunks are so smooth and creamy when you bite into them. A little different from the traditional oatmeal cookie and just the thing to satisfy my cookie craving. They freeze really well and would be pretty easy to ship if you are sending a care package. (No, I am not sending a care package to Taylor in London, after all she has 2 Laduree stores and does not need my cookies!)
Give these a try if you are a white chocolate fan and let me know what brand of white chocolate you like.
