C is for Cookies

Marry Me Cookies

Source: Melissa Stadler, The Cooking Channel
Yield: 4 dozen cookies when using a small cookie scoop
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar (light works too)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt (I use a combo of table salt AND course salt)
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Remove melted butter from heat and stir in the brown sugar and granulated sugar.  Stir until fully incorporated and well mixed together (will be a wet, thick stirrable mixture). Place the mixture in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Once chilled, remove from refrigerator and add in the egg, egg yolk & vanilla.  Stir to combine.
Add in the flour, oats, baking soda, salt & cinnamon.  Stir together until fully incorporated.  (Alternatively, you can whisk all these dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl and then add it to the wet mixture, this is what I did).

Add in the white chocolate chips & chocolate chips and stir to distribute evenly.  (This will seem like too many chips, but trust me it isn’t).  Place dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Cover baking sheet with parchment.

Remove dough from refrigerator and scoop into balls using a small cookie scoop.  Place on prepared baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart.  Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until lightly golden and tops look set.

Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.  Repeat for remaining dough. Keep dough in fridge in between batches. Store baked cookies in an airtight container.
