Coconut Oatmeal cookies


From: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chewy-Crispy-Coconut-Cookies/Detail.aspx


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder; stir into the creamed mixture. Add the oatmeal, crushed cereal and coconut and mix until combined.
  3. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be light brown at the edges and on the bottom. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

Toast the coconut at 350 degrees for ten minutes prior to putting into the mixture, add a 1/2 cup chocolate chip cookies, and add 1/2 cup more flour - perfection! The toasting of the coconut really gives it a true coconut flavor. I was also generous on the vanilla. Excellent!

Great cookies, Melissa. I made a batch in compliance with the recipe and agreed with a couple other reviewers that they had a slightly salty taste. The second batch was made eliminating the baking powder and 1/2 the salt, also added toasted walnuts and chocolate chips. Baked at 375degrees for 9 minutes. CRISPY AND DELISH! Just the way my family likes them. Thanks for sharing.

Yum! This was a real hit with my whole family. I have done some baking in the past but I am not a pro and I made this recipe with ease. I did make a few changes in order to make them a bit healthier...I used 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup melted honey (just mixed in at same time as sugar) I added 1/4 tsp. baking soda (because of honey) and instead of 1/2 cup butter I used 1/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of apple sauce. I then cooked them on a lower temp. (just below 300 F) for 18-20 mins. I will definately try again with more honey and less sugar. Great recipe, thanks a bunch!h
