Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

I was hungry for oatmeal cookies. So last Thursday, I decided to use my sister-in-law's recipe. It was her grandmother's recipe. First, comes the butter and sugar.
The dry ingredients.

Vanilla and eggs.

Oatmeal, coconut and dried cranberries!

Ready for the oven!
Out of the oven!

Snack time! A great dessert wine-Woodbridge Moscato Bianco with some berried sugar for the rim!
The recipe---
Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup coconut
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup (dried cranberries, raisins, or sliced gumdrops)
Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in oatmeal, coconut,and your choice of "goodies". Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Ya'll Come Back!


  1. I always wondered what wine to serve with oatmeal cookies. Problem solved.

  2. Those cookies look yummy. I love Mondavi Rieslings. I will have to try this one.

  3. Yummy, I am going to give that recipe to Middle Monkey and let him make them for us.

  4. Ooh that looks delicious! Defintely trying it out because I love anything with oatmeal!
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I like the oatmeal cookie recipe, but I REALLY like the idea of rimming the wine glass, sounds yummy.

  6. Looks really great, Lorilee. I'll have to look for that Mexican vanilla extract next time I'm at the International Food Mart. I've been craving "ranger" cookies, which are kinda like this but made with cornflakes.

  7. Those look delicious. I am not a big fan of coconut but love the cherry oatmeal.

  8. Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorites. These look delish. Mimi

  9. Around here, cookies that good, would have disappeared before you could have snapped a photo!
