White Chocolate Rum Raisin Cookies on a platter

White Chocolate Rum Raisin Cookies, I ate the broken one!

Spane and his class are going on a field trip, and I volunteered to be one of the helping parents. We have to bring a bag lunch, and I decided to bring cookies for the kids.

I really like this recipe because it is so versatile, you can change the add-ins and have a completely different cookie every time. The add-ins for these White Chocolate Rum Raisin Cookies are the rum, raisins, white chocolate and walnuts.

One thing I do recommend about making these cookies is to get yourself a size 24 ice cream scoop. They make making drop cookies a real joy, and you don’t wind up getting cookie dough all over your hands that you – eek, wind up eating!

As an award-winning and serious home cook, I seriously believe there is no reason why you can't have a restaurant quality meal at home. One of the good things about eating at home is to save money, so armed with a good menu plan, a shopping list, and an appreciation of good food, we can all have gourmet food on a budget.
