|yes, that is the melted white chocolate oozing out|
To toast the nuts: Chop up one cup of your favorite nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts work best here. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and toast nuts for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant.Let cool.
Line two baking sheets with baking paper or silicon sheets
1 cup of nuts roasted, and chopped
3/4 cup butter room temperature( I used salted and omitted the salt in recipe)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt ( if your using unsalted butter)
1 teaspoon of good quality cinnamon
3 cups of organic old- fashioned rolled oats
1 cup of good quality white chocolate ( I use Chocovic Spanish chocolate) from http://www.mumsigt.se
1 cup of organic sultanas
1/2 cup golden raisins
In a large mixing bowl use either a hand mixer or a stand mixer, and add the butter and sugar. Mix until creamy.About 2-3 minutes.Add the egg and the vanilla and mix again until incorporated.In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda. Add to the wet mixture and beat until combined. Stir in nuts,oatmeal, white chocolate, sultans,golden raisins and mix well.Add a splash of water if it seems a little dry, but just a splash.
I like a larger cookie so I usually shape them like if i was making a burger. About the palm of your hand and flatten slightly on your prepared baking sheet.Space about 2-3 cm apart and bake for 10-13 minutes. The edges should be nice and golden with chocolate starting to ooze out. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to cooling rack. Makes 12-15 large cookies. To prevent cookies sticking to your hands wet your hands with water and this should help to flatten and mold them into shape.
