My sister, Sharon (Ronni to those close to her), loves a good oatmeal cookie.  I, on the other hand, am not a big fan so I’m always looking for a way to make a more interesting version of her favorite cookie.  I happened upon a promising recipe while trolling the internet for inspiration.  The idea of white chocolate, citrus and raisin flavors combined with a traditional oatmeal cookie appealed to me so I took it as a challenge to make it work.  After several unsuccessful attempts, I came up with this cookie.  I hope you like it as much as Ronni does.  It is one of her new favorites.  Wanna give it a try??

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Set the cookie sheets aside.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl.  Next, cream the butter at medium speed with an electric mixer; gradually add sugars, mixing well after each addition.  Add in egg and orange flavoring just until combined.  Add flour mixture and oats in thirds and stir just until fully combined.  Stir in 4 cups chopped white chocolate and raisins.  Cover and chill dough 1 hour.
