Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the National Eating Holiday, er, I mean, Day of Thanks (for tasty, tasty desserts, right?), here is a recipe for the delicious, delicious cookies that my friend Tim baked last night.  The inspiration came from a picture we saw ages ago on a website that is both a blessing and a curse to foodies like myself. FoodPornDaily. Have you heard of it? If not, go look now. Today’s picture is Chocolate Cake layered with Caramel, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Mousse.

Christina and I supplied the oats, macadamia nuts, and wonderful company. (Right, Tim?) Disclaimer: The recipe below isn’t Tim’s.  If I can wrest that recipe from here, I’ll post it.

This recipe was taken off of  allrecipes.com  (Ocean Spray Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Chunk Cookies) and modified slightly.

Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Yields 2 1/2 dozen

  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (6 ounce) package Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
  • 2/3 cup chopped Macadamia nuts
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

And now, I am off to finish up my last class, do some housework and pack my things for my adventure to Tampa, Florida tomorrow! There will be sun and there will be happiness!  There will also be a post or several coming up while I’m at home, never fear!

Happy Thanksgiving Break!

  1. These look amazing! I’ve always been a fan of oatmeal cookies & I love your spin on the traditional oatmeal. My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is a marshmallow topped casserole with sweet potatoes and cinnamon apples. 🙂 Soo good. Hope your Thanksgiving was great!
