Salted Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: Smitten Kitchen

Makes about: 30 cookies (tablespoon scoops, and a half recipe)
Prep time: 10 minutes plus 30 minutes chilling
Bake time: 10-12 minutes.

These cookies are crispy, delicious, and slightly salty. J thinks they are like the ranger cookies from HUDS, only better. I made a half recipe, which makes about 30 cookies. You can freeze and bake these cookies later. I usually bake them for about 15 minutes if they are frozen.

Half Recipe
7 tbsp butter
½ cup sugar
1/8 cup (2 tbsp) brown sugar
½ egg
½ tsp vanilla
½ c flour
3/8 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 ¼ cup rolled oats
3 oz white chocolate chips
¼ tsp salt for topping (optional)

Full Recipe
1 ¾ sticks butter
1 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
¾ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 ½ cup rolled oats
6 oz white chocolate chips
½ tsp salt for topping

Special equipment
Baking pan, lined with parchment paper.

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cream butter and sugar.
3. Mix in egg and vanilla.
4. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
5. Mix in oats.
6. Stir in chocolate chips.
7. Scoop by tablespoons and form into balls. Sprinkle lightly with salt if desired.
8. Freeze for about 30 minutes, or if desired, just bake directly. Chilling helps to prevent the cookies from spreading too much. You can also just freeze the cookies and bake at some point in the future.
9. Bake 10-12 minutes until slightly golden brown. Baking for longer yields as crisper cookie.
