~ My Cookies~
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. AP flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. uncooked regular oatmeal
5 oz. white chocolate ( 5 of the 1 oz. blocks of white chocolate) coarsely chopped
1 c. chopped maraschino cherries
Preheat oven to 375F. Place oven rack in middle of oven.
Chop cherries, and pat as dry as possible. Place your chopped cherries on several thicknesses of paper towels and squeeze as much liquid from them as possible. Set aside.
Beat butter at medium speed with mixer until fluffy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. With a wooden spoon, stir in oats, white chocolate and the cherries.
Using a tiny cookie scoop, drop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet, or an un-greased cookie sheet. Place cookies 2 inches apart. Bake @ 375F for exactly 10 minutes. They will be just lightly browned. Cool 2 or 3 several minutes on cookie sheet, then remove to wire racks.
The recipe will give you about 5 dozen cookies.
