My great grandma's recipe (duh). The combination of confectioners' sugar and cake flour makes them really melt in your mouth. Don't try to double unless you've got a really big mixer!

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Rating: 4.65 stars

These cookies are absolutely the best!! They really should be named disappearing cookies because they won't stay around long. Set your timer, these cookies are best when they are lightly browned.
