Consider these a way to fight the symptoms of Christmas cookie withdrawal.

Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate and Cherries

  • 3/4 cup butter or shortening
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats

Beat butter or shortening on medium for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, honey, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon and beat until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Add flour and beat until it’s incorporated. Stir in the oats, cherries and chocolate chips. Drop dough into balls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 until golden, about 10-12 minutes.

  8. YUM! I just made something like this and put it on my blog yesterday. I thought to myself that they would be great with cranberries- but cherries sound even better!

    I made a similar cookie but without the oatmeal. At the time, I thought it was really good. Now I see it could have been much better. And I was so close …
