Oatmeal Coconut Chewies

These are fabulous cookies....dare I say my favorite of all the auditioning newbies.  Butter-y, vanilla-y, with a sublime crispy/chewy thing going on.  Even my coconut-hating husband loved them!  The oatmeal and coconut just lend the right amount of flavor and texture to kick these babies right to the permanent Goody Tray' shizzle!

Oatmeal Coconut Chewies
Recipe Source:  My Tasty Treasures via Mel's Kitchen Cafe
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened to cool room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup quick oats

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 a greased or lined (silpat or parchment) baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are set but not overly browned (bake a few minutes longer for a crispier version).

  1. We made these Christmas eve day as part of the plate we leave for Santa, and they were delicious! And Santa must have liked them as well, since they were gone in the morning. Thanks for helping us to find a new Christmas cookie.

    I hope your Christmas was as wonderful as all the recipes you have given us over the past year have been.
