Cherry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Hey y'all! Just another day of cookie love here on The Cookie Battle. As promised, here is the recipe for the Cherry White Chocolate Oatmeal cookies that I made for my book club on Monday. As I'm sure you can imagine, I made these cookies on Sunday, so today being Friday, these cookies are LONG gone, but I still have the pictures to look back on and remember them fondly...


1 stick + 6 tbsp unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, cream butter and sugars together

Add vanilla and eggs, beat well.

Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.

Fold in oats, cherries, and chocolate chips.

Drop dough from rounded tablespoonfuls.

Bake 8-10 minutes.

Take the cookies out of the oven when they still look a little doughy on top if you like a softer, chewier cookie and allow them to cool on the pan for at least ten minutes (otherwise they fall apart). Makes 3 dozen cookies.

How do you like your oatmeal cookies? With raisins? With nuts? With chocolate chips?


  1. LOVE the texture of oatmeal in cookies. I am a chocolate chip girl myself...

  2. I have been on an oatmeal cookie kick I have made oatmeal chip cookies 2 times in the past few weeks :) Yummy, Can't wait to try your recipe!

  3. Mmmm cookies. I like them with raisins or chocolate, no nuts.

  4. Why are dried cherries and white chocolate so good together? Especially in cookie form? After seeing your awesome cookie recipe, my apple seems like such a sad snack.

  5. Oatmeal pretty much my favorite cookies ever. I like them either with craisins or butterscotch.

  6. Yikes these look almost TOO good! Yum!

  7. Yum - these look and sound delicious!

  8. I've never had a cookie with cherries in it. Guess it's time to pop that cherry.

    I'm not funny today. Sorry.

  9. I like adding a little bit of everything to my oatmeal cookies: dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips--the more, the merrier!!

  10. I don't mind raisins in my cookies - I prefer chocolate chips or craisins though.

    There are very few cookies I have met that I didn't like.

  11. I really like doughy oatmeal cookies with raisins and nuts. :-)

  12. I actually really like oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips, or banana, or coconut. Or dark chocolate chips. These look great!

  13. I love oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips! I am a weirdo when it comes to dried fruit in cookies - never a fan!

  14. I used to not like them, but now, I almost ALWAYS put at least a little oatmeal in cookies. The texture is awesome. And I don't really do raisins, but love the chocolate chips and toffee bits...
