These are the best! Tied with my chocolate chip cookies…honest. I would not tell you they were great if they weren’t.
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 c up good quality white chocolate chips
- 1 cup good quality milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
- 2 cups chopped pecans
- 1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
- 1/2 cup granola mix
- 1 tsp. grated orange zest
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend the first three ingredients until creamy, and then add the eggs and vanilla. Note: This is the only liquid required so don’t think I have made an error here.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and add to the egg mixture, a little at a time, mixing well.
With the machine on low, pulse it, yes I said pulse it, when adding the remaining ingredients. Do this all at once and it is easier to mix together.
When well mixed, use a 1 inch scoop or shape by hand into golf ball size cookies and bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet for approximately 10-14 minutes. Watch so they don’t burn, should be a lovely golden colour.
You can fill the cookie jar, then put the remaining cookies in a covered container and freeze. You will be the hero when you fill the jar up again after everyone complains the jar is empty.
