White Chocolate Oatmeal Craisin Cookies {Christmas Tray 2013}

White Chocolate Oatmeal Craisin Cookies
Now that it’s November, I think it’s acceptable to start talking Christmas and I’m very excited to be sharing my first treat of the season.

White Chocolate Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

My dad loves White Chocolate Oatmeal Craisin Cookies so when I came across a recipe in one of my favorite baking cookbooks, I knew it would be a great cookie to adapt and share with you all for your Christmas baking (and take to my parents so that I wouldn’t eat them all).

The original recipe called for cranberries and raisins but I decided to change it up a bit and use craisins instead. The thing that really jumped out at me with this recipe is the use of orange zest. I knew it would be amazing with the tart craisins and it totally is. I love the texture of the oatmeal and the sweet, creaminess of the white chocolate too. They are basically perfect for Christmas. You have to make them, mmkay?
