While tagging this post to put it in the proper categories, I came to realize that most of my cookie recipes have oats in them. That’s a lot of cookies. . .at least there should be no question in your mind as to what my favorite kind of cookie is! There is just something about the chewy nuttiness of oats that makes cookies containing the ingredient so good!
These cookies are no different. Take a traditional oatmeal raisin cookie, up the spices and swap out the raisins for white chocolate chips, and you have one of my new favorite oatmeal cookies. These cookies are loaded with cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of ginger and cloves so that you can actually taste the spice instead of the spices being overpowered by chocolate or other ingredients.
While I’m usually more of a dark chocolate fan, the creamy richness of the white chocolate is just what these cookies need. And, of course, they are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside cookie when you take them from the oven!
