This homemade cookie recipe is one of the best if you like chewy, crunchy, salty, and sweet all rolled up in one. It is full of all the good stuff~oatmeal, brown sugar, white chocolate chips, and nuts. What more could you ask for? Not only does it taste delicious, but its easy and makes about five dozen! When you have a large family like mine you need a recipe that makes a lot of cookies in one recipe. I don’t know about you, but I want to do them all at once not in batches. More is more in this case. 🙂
The recipe originated from either Southern Living or Better Homes and Gardens, honestly I can’t remember. I modified the original recipe to suit our tastes and my cooking style (easy and quick). Originally I believe there were a few extra ingredients but I changed and condensed until I got it down to a manageable recipe. This is great when you need lots of cookies for a bake sale or potluck dinner at church. It does take a little time, I mean really, you are baking five DOZEN cookies! However, when you put one of these tasty homemade cookies in your mouth you will not regret it.

**This recipe is very thick and chunky requiring a large stand mixer with enough power to combine the ingredients.
There are a few tips that I would like to give you that will make things a little easier.
Wear an apron or some old clothes (you will get flour on you).
Use REAL ingredients, real butter, pure vanilla extract, real white chocolate chips, etc.
Use two baking sheets. While one is baking prepare the other one and have it ready to go in the oven next.
Lightly grease the cookie sheet and scrap off the baked crumbs in-between batches.
Be sure that the eggs and butter are at room temperature.
Please use a heavy-duty stand mixer. Do not attempt this with a hand-held mixer or by using a spoon.
Now go gather all of your ingredients and start baking…you are going to LOVE these cookies. I promise you they will be one of the best cookies you have ever eaten. Let me know what you think!
