Oatmeal White Chocolate Cherry Cookies

They are even more delicious than they sound or look. Here's the original recipe, and below is my modified version. I didn't have shortening (and don't really like baking with it) so I doubled the butter. Also, while I like butterscotch, I thought there were a lot of flavors in this cookie, so I decided to try it with just white chocolate chips (doubled to make up for missing butterscotch). I would add more cherries next time too.


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups quick cooking oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup dried cherries (would increase to 1-1/2 cups next time)
  • 1cup white chocolate chips
  1. Heat oven to 375. Line baking sheets and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and shortening at medium speed until creamy. Gradually mix in both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and continue to beat well.
  3. Combine flour and next three ingredients in a small bowl. Gradually add dry ingredients to butter mixture. Beat until well blended. Stir in cherries and both chips.
  4. Scoop dough by tablespoon full onto baking sheets. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for one minute on baking sheet before transferring to a wire racks to cool completely.
  5. Makes 48
