Coconut-Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe came to me from Earl’s mom. They are similar to a regular oatmeal cookie, except with an intriguing extra chewy component.

Three people who dislike coconut have been loving these cookies, so don’t rule them out if you are a coconut-hater. I know you’re out there. Lurking. If you come over to my house in the next few days, you can try one! Hurry, though, because N says these are his new favorites, and he’s a cookie fanatic.

Coconut-Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup coconut

Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs one at a time and cream. Add vanilla and next 3 ingredients. Cream. Add flour slowly. You may need to hand mix. Add oatmeal and coconut and mix in.

Chill for 1 hour. Roll into 1 inch balls. Bake 375 for 10 minutes. Makes 4-5 dozen.
