I Want To Marry You Cookies are insanely good, rich, and might possibly convince someone to fall in love with you. . .or so they say.
I’m not going to lie, I made these cookies entirely because of their name. It completely intrigued me. Plus, a cookie that claims to be a surefire way to get someone to fall in love with you? If that’s true, you’d better be careful who you share these with.
With all the hype about proclamations of love, marriage proposals and immediate love connections, I had to make them to see what all the hype was about. Plus, apparently these became the top recipe of 2012 on the Cooking Channel.
Verdict?I can testify that these are good. Really, really good. Now I can’t make any promises that they’ll elicit any marriage proposals, but I can promise though that whoever you share them with will become your new BFF.
The dark brown sugar gives these cookies an extra depth of rich flavor, but if you don’t have dark brown sugar, light is fine to use. Oh, and when you mix the sugars and melted butter together, the aroma is heavenly. I love the oatmeal in these, it just adds another flavor and texture that is delicious. Now if you’re not a fan of white chocolate chips, you certainly can swap them out for whatever you like. The sky’s the limit here. You can add whatever you dang well please. M&M’s, nuts, chopped up candy bar, butterscotch chips, etc.
Gosh, if only I’d known about these cookies back in college when I had a huge crush on this guy. I made him my cream cheese brownies hoping to woo him. Sadly, it didn’t work. Maybe these cookies would have :).
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup chocolate chips (I use half milk, half semisweet)
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until melted. Remove from the heat.
Add the dark brown sugar and granulated sugar and stir until smooth. Chill the mixture for 10 minutes.
Remove from the refrigerator and stir in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
Add the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and mix together.
Stir in the white chocolate chips and chocolate chips.
Roll by hand into 24 medium-size balls or use a scoop, and place on a light-colored cookie sheet. (I wanted a little bit smaller cookie but still did generous scoops and got closer to 40 cookies).
Chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Remove the cookies from the refrigerator and bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
If you're like me, when you make cookies you want to bake them ASAP and not have to wait for the dough to chill, but these cookies really, really need the chill time before baking them. Give them at least 30 minutes, or even 45 if you can wait that long.
I froze some of these dough balls and baked them right from the freezer and I actually loved how they baked up even more so than baking them just chilled. I highly recommend throwing some in the freezer and bake some frozen.
