Mini Oatmeal White-Chocolate Heart Cookies – Recipe!

As I mentioned on previous posts, white chocolate is my chocolate of choice.  I know it’s not really chocolate, but the by-product of making milk and dark chocolate, but I love it.  I think white chocolate lends a sweetness to baked goods that is different than other chocolate – it adds creaminess and texture that blends into light grains like oatmeal.

Valentine’s Day is soon upon us and guess who owns about a hundred different kinds of heart-shaped pans? Me!  I decided to start off this month with an simple mini-cookie recipe, so these pans of mine get a little use and they make pretty cute cookies too.  If you don’t own stock in heart-shaped pans you can use a mini muffin pan for this recipe and if you live close to me – come borrow mine, hah!

Oatmeal Cookies are one cookie I always enjoy and somehow I seem to convince myself they are a wee bit healthier because of the oats, and I love the chewy texture.  I think the combination of two of my favorite ingredients make these cookies super special and if you top them with a few festive sprinkles – you got yourself a sweet Valentine’s Day treat.
