White Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

I love cookies, and love white chocolate. These cookies are very yummy and not hard to make. My 4-year old son helped me make these and we had a blast!

White Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups chopped white chocolate
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Then, stir in the rolled oats, white chocolate chunks and pecans. Drop by tablespoons (or use a cookies scoop) onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
Note: These don't flatten much while baking. You may want to slightly flatten them with the bottom of a drinking glass before or right after baking.

Dishy - did these turn out crispy or chewy?? Grumpy loves white chocolate also but he tells me I never make them I'm on a lookout! ;)

Thanks everyone!

HoneyB, they are chewy. I like them chewy so I always bake for 8 minutes. I forgot to mention that they don't spread much so you may want to slightly flatten w/a drinking glass before or right after baking.

Thanks Dishy! I'm going to try these for Grumpy then and maybe add some macadamia nuts to them also! :)
