Ok, I know everyone has a favorite cookie 🍪
First off, who doesn’t love cookies, they are warm and comforting anytime but especially in cooler weather. With Fall coming on and the holidays approaching, you know cookie exchanges, parties, and holiday baking, I thought I would do a series of cookie recipes in the next two months to maybe add a few new ones to your rotation. I would also love if you have a favorite to share with me.
The reason this is my favorite cookie recipe is that it encompasses every cookie I love in one recipe. Oatmeal, chocolate chip, pecan, and coconut, you can not go wrong! Sometimes I add peanut butter too, because my son and husband are crazy over all things peanut butter. You could add butterscotch or caramel, really the variations are endless. I hope you will give them a try, happy Baking 😊
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate chips
Place coconut and pecans on a baking pan. Bake at 350° for 6 to 8 minutes or until toasted, stirring every 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla beat well.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
Add to creamed mixture beat well.
Stir in the oats, chocolate chips and toasted coconut and pecans.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350° for about 11 minutes or until browned. Remove cool for about 5 minutes and enjoy. This recipe makes about six dozen.
I like to also make ice cream sandwiches with these, if you want to make them also adjust your baking time to nine minutes.
