These oatmeal raisin cookies are so much more than your average oatmeal raisin cookie. With subtle a orange flavor and white chocolate covering a 1/3 of each cookie these oatmeal raisin cookies deserve a category all there own.
My grandma found the recipe for Frostbite Cookies in a random magazine and we decided to give them a try last year. I am so glad we did and I am so glad that Sun-Maid Raisins decided to publish this recipe in the random magazine that my grandma found it in. Yum.
3/4 cup Raisins
3 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons grated orange peel (can use fresh or dried)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats or quick oats
1-1/4 cups white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Heat oven to 350 F.
Put raisins and orange juice in a small microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 1 minute. Set aside to cool while you mix other ingredients.
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add egg and orange peel to bowl and mix well. Stir in flour and baking soda.Mix oats and raisin-orange juice mixture into batter. Mix thoroughly, making sure raisins are mixed throughout batter.
Drop dough by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets leaving about 2 inches between cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from pan onto wire rack to cool immediately. While cookies cool pour white baking chips and oil into a microwave safe bowl on medium power (50%) for about 2 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and stir mixture until chips are melted. Dip cookies one at a time about 1/3 way up into chocolate. Place on a wax paper lined pan to let white chocolate is set. *Alternately you can drizzle the white chocolate over the cookies to get cookies with a little white chocolate in every bite.
