I just saw this recipe on another blog that I follow. I can't believe I haven't posted this earlier. After all, I live in Texas!
Oatmeal cookies filled with nuts, chocolate chips and a hint of cinnamon.
Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 Sheet Pan, lined with Parchment Paper.
3 C flour 1 TBS Baking Powder 1 TBS Baking Soda 1 TBS ground Cinnamon 1 tsp Salt 1 1/2 C Butter, room temperature 1 1/2 C granulated Sugar 1 1/2 C Brown Sugar 3 Large Eggs 1 TBS Vanilla 3 C Semisweet Chocolate Chips 3 C Old Fashioned Rolled Oats 2 C Sweetened Flaked Coconut 2 C Chopped Pecans
Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
In a large bowl:
Beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, 1 minute.
Gradually beat in granulated Sugar and Brown Sugar, beat for 2 minutes.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each.
Beat in vanilla extract.
Fold in flour mixture by hand, just until combined.
Fold in chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans.
For each cookie:
Drop 3 TBS (1/4 C) of dough 3" apart on the Sheet Pan.
Bake 17-19 minutes. The edges should be golden brown.
Remove the pan to a rack to cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely.
