Oatmeal Coconut Chewies


So once again here I am with a long time between posts. I had a day off and the coworkers have been complaining that I haven't baked anything in a while so I went in search of something that I could make with what I had on hand. I happened upon this recipe that was posted on this blog My Tasty Treasures (disclaimer -- this blogger has a wicked naughty sense of humor) but she has good recipes. She had gotten the recipe from this blog My Kitchen Cafe. So many good blogs out there and such great recipes. I think the coworkers will be pleased with these cookies.

OATMEAL COCONUT CHEWIES

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut (I toasted the coconut)
1 cup quick oats
1 cup chopped, toasted pecans (of course, I have to add these)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream together the sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes until cookies are set but not overly brown. (My oven took a bit longer so check your oven). If you bake longer they are a bit crisper.

These do sound good! I'll have to give them a try, Angie. I like crisp cookies, so I would probably bake them longer. Of course I just love cookies....

Oatmeal cookies are among my most favorite; I'm rediscovering that I like coconut so these look especially good to me right now. Sometimes a cookie is just the perfect treat!
