Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

10 Dec


These might just be my favorite cookies.  Another fantastic recipe from Mrs. Weiner– not exactly sure what cookbook these come from- but in it, they are called Zoe’s macaroons. These have a bit of coconut in them– but trust me- i don’t like coconut- and these don’t taste like it- it just helps w. the chewy texture.

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter (2 sticks), melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
4 cups rolled oats

Semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 3/4 of a bag)

Preheat oven to 375.  Butter baking sheets (don’t think this is necessary- can also line w. parchment paper).  In a large bowl, blend both sugars and melted butter and eggs.  Stir in coconut and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, mix the soda, salt and flour.  Combine both mixtures.  Add rolled oats, 1 cup at a time, and mix until batter is very stiff.  Drop cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.  Bake until lightly browned.  12-14 mins.  I’d err on the side of under baking so chewy.

Makes a lot of cookies.
