( aka “Coconut Chewies”)

I won’t take credit for the origin of this, I got the idea and the foundation of the recipe from an old school chum, Debbie Black Iverson.  I’m torn over which is better – the texture or the taste – both are most excellent.

1 cup butter, softened (option: 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup shortening)
2 cups brown sugar (option: 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. coconut extract

2 cups flour
2 cups oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup coconut
½ cup raisins (optional)
1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips or M&Ms (optional)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

In one bowl combine everything wet; blend well.  In another bowl, combine everything dry.  Combine the two, mix in the mix-ins. (Careful to not break your spoon, dough is very stiff.)  Drop by tablespoons (or small scoop); flatten slightly with backside of spatula or bottom of a glass before baking.  Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes or until light brown.  Cool slightly on cookie sheet before removing to foil-lined counter to cool completely.  Store in airtight container.
