Christmas Chip Cookies…12 Weeks of Christmas Treats

Aren’t these festive?  I love the green, red, and white chips peeking out of each little cookie!

The husband and child think they are really good and have had them daily since I baked them Tuesday morning. 

I halved my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe and subbed in the holiday morsels, minus the chocolate ones.  Yes, I picked out each chocolate chip.  I thought about Andrew completing the task, but he would have eaten each chocolate chip.  Since I mixed up the dough on Monday night, I had no desire to calm a 7-year old boy bouncing off the walls from eating too much chocolate. 

I baked them on Tuesday morning, straight from the fridge, which is why they didn’t spread as much as usual.  If you like a thin and chewy cookie, chill the dough for only 1 hour.  Also, I subbed in white chips for the chocolate chips I removed from the bag.

Christmas Chip Cookies
3/4 cup oat flour**
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 bag Holiday Morsels, minus chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate morsels

Mix together the oat flour, regular flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugars, and vanilla together for 3 minutes. 
Add eggs to sugar mixture, one at a time.
Mix in the dry ingredients.
Stir in chips.
Refrigerate for at least 60 minutes or overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Portion cookie dough onto parchment-lined or sprayed cookie sheets.
These cookies spread, so don’t crowd them.  I portioned 9 cookies to a half-sheet pan.
Bake for 8-9 minutes.  Mine took 8 minutes 30 seconds.
Remove from oven and allow to cool before removing to a rack.

**Make oat flour by grinding quick-cooking oats in your food processor.
