You'll be looking for a glass of milk to go with them as soon as they come out of the oven!
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsps coconut extract (or vanilla, almond)
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups oats
1 cup coconut
Cream together the butter, sugars, eggs and extract. Set aside.
Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the butter mixture in 3 additions until combined.
I divided my cookie dough in half and baked one half as is. I topped them with a little extra coconut before popping them in the oven.
To the second half I mixed in 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets and bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. Cool.
Here's the Coconut Oatmeal half of the batch...
and here are the one's with added cranberry and white chocolate chips.
