A classic recipe with a holiday twist! These cookies are so festive and colorful that they get snatched up immediately.
I have a lot of cookie memories as a kid. But one of the memories that is kind of dorky is my obsession with a certain sandwich chains white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies. As a child and to this day I had a special hatred for fast food while my boy siblings and father loved it.
So when I could convince them that a sandwich could win out over a greasy burger on our family road trips, I always made sure to seal the deal with promises of those freshly baked cookies.
This cookie recipe is a twist on that childhood memory for me. We started off with my momma’s base chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe. Blending oatmeal into flour in the blender lends a slightly denser texture to the cookies without being heavy.
This dough is denser than a normal chocolate chip cookie dough though and can be a struggle for hand blenders. So either use a wooden spoon or a heavy duty mixer like the Bosch Universal Plus.
I absolutely adore this mixer. It’s shorter profile is amazing for countertop use and I love that there is no head on it to get in the way for adding ingredients (or getting covered in cookie dough!)
Happy cookie making!
