Peaches & Cream Oatmeal Cookies


It sounds like a surprising combination in a cookie. But it uses white chocolate chips for the cream and dried peaches. The cookie itself is somewhat chewy, yet firm. If you can't find dried peaches (I was lucky) but you can also use apricots.


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • Pinch salt

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup chopped dried peaches

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F with a rack in the middle of the oven.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly add egg and continue mixing. Slowly add flour mixture, oats, peaches, walnuts, and white chocolate chips. Mix until combined.

Line cookie sheets with parchment. Use a scooper or wet hands and make 20 balls from the dough placing evenly on cookies sheets. Press down on cookie dough with palm of your hand to make a flat circle.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and still a bit tender in the center. Remove from oven and let sit on sheet trays 1 minute. Remove to cooling racks to cool completely.
