Craisin White Chocolate Marshmallow Oatmeal Cookies ~ #fillthecookiejar

I have joined another new facebook group called Fill the Cookie Jar.   This group was started by a good friend, Cynthia from Feeding Big.  Each month we are given a theme and we will have to fill the cookie jar with the cookies we have made.  This month's theme is Kids Favorite/Back to School.  The post will be published on the first of the month.  You do not have to participate every month, which is a nice feature of this group.  If you are interested in joining click on the link:  Fill the Cookie Jar, fill out the form and start baking cookies.. Who doesn't like to bake and eat cookies.
Fill The Cookie Jar

One of my favorite cookies growing up and is still today is Oatmeal Raisin cookies.  I could eat the whole cookie jar.  Last week at work they had Oatmeal Craisin cookies with marshmallows.  I decided that this was going to be my cookie for this month.  I decided to add  some white chocolate, because who doesn't like chocolate in their cookies.  I did some reading about adding marshmallows to your cookies.  One person said to not add them to the dough mixture and just to push them into the center part of the cookies.  I tried that and it got tedious, so I dumped the rest of the marshmallows into the cookie dough and mixed them up.  I tried not to have any marshmallows on the bottom so that they wouldn't stick.  They did work out but the marshmallows melted too much for my liking so next time I will put them in after they have baked about half the time and see what happens.  I will update when I do this.

Craisin White Chocolate Marshmallow Oatmeal Cookies


1 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
2 cups flour (I used 3/4 cup whole wheat and 1 1/4 cup white flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1 cup craisin
1/2 cup white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli white chocolate and broke it into pieces)
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows ( I cut my marshmallows in half)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In mixing bowl add butter and sugars.  Mix until smooth. 
Add eggs and beat until thoroughly mixed.
Mix in vanilla.  
In separate bowl mix oatmeal, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice.  Slowly add this mixture to butter/sugar mixture and continue to beat until well mixed.  
With mixing spoon mix in craisins and white chocolate.  
Either add marshmallows at this stage or wait until the cookies are on cookie sheet.  
Using cookie scoop drop cookies onto cookie sheet. 
If you haven't added the marshmallows, add a couple of them now.. pressing into cookie dough  
Bake for 10-12 minutes in 350 degree oven.  Let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Gingerbread Truffles

Like my Candy Cane Fudge Truffles,
my Gingerbread Truffles came from the same way...
I made some Gingerbread Spice cookies and they didn't really turn out...
They tasted wonderfully, but as they wouldn't come off the pan and also were hard..
I couldn't serve them...
So I decided to make the cookies into crumbs,
Add some Cream Cheese and roll them into balls and dip them into white chocolate.

Gingerbread Truffles

3 cups gingerbread cookie crumbs
8 oz cream cheese
white chocolate
ginger candy or sprinkles for garnish

Mix cookie crumbs and cream cheese, I used my kitchen aide to do this.  Roll into balls.  Put in refrigerator to chill.  Once chilled dip into melted white chocolate and garnish if you like with small pieces of ginger candy or sprinkles.

I haven't got the art of dipping into white chocolate ~ The balls wouldn't dip, so I used a knife and spread the white chocolate onto the balls.
