Coconut Crisps

Hi everyone! I saw this recipe at Mennonite Girls Can Cook and couldn't wait to make them on Sunday.
Coconut's a favorite of mine so I wanted to share a little Bloggy Love:@)
Mine turned out a bit more chewy than crisp, but they are oh so good!
My grown sons each ate three or four before dinner-who raised those boys anyway???
I will definitely make these again, possible additions:
Pecans, raisins or drizzled with melted chocolate. 
Coconut Crisps
Ingredients:
1 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 C butter
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 C rolled oats
1 C flaked coconut

Directions:
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.
Cream butter and sugar till light.
Beat in eggs one at a time.
Stir in flour mixture, vanilla and oats, then coconut.
Drop by rounded tsp on greased cookie sheet. (I used parchment)
Bake at 375 degrees about 10 minutes.
They will be soft out of the oven, leave on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to clean cookie sheet. (I put them on a cooling rack.)

Just a reminder about my Celebrity Cook-Along on March 15th! 
Join me in making Bailey's Irish Cream White Truffles-oh yea! Or any recipe by Ina Garten.
Don't just sit there drooling, let's cook something:@)
Have a happy day!

  3. What's wrong with eating three or four before dinner? Or anytime for that matter. Delicious!

    Best,

  16. Mmmm, chewy deliciousness! I think I would prefer them chewy anyways... and funny because 1/2 dipped in chocolate is what immediately came to mind, but I think drizzled would suffice:) Yum.

  27. These sound wonderful. I think I'd add a handful or two of chocolate chips, but that's just because I'm addicted to chocolate.

    I'm hosting a weekly link up, Sweet Tooth Friday, and I'd love to have you share your recipe. http://alli-n-son.com/2011/03/10/vanilla-donuts/

  29. Well, Mizz Lynn, I made those cookies and...
    THEY ARE DELICIOUS. Really good. The oats and coconut are sooo good together and the pecans I added took them over the top.
    Thanks for a recipe that I will use again and again. And, of course, you KNOW I will have them posted before I can grab another one. With a link right back to YOUR kitchen... (Mr. Sweet just walked thru and said he thought those were the best he ever ate and that he is a connoisseur
    of good cookies. HAHHHAAA...he's so cute, I told him he could have one more small one. (he is trying to lose weight).

  32. I think I could eat a handful of these before diner too ;) Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't know whether to love your blog or hate it!
    Just the picture of the cookies probably made me gain weight. And then, to mention Bailey's Irish Cream White Truffles...that's almost more than I can stand!

    What a wonderful recipe. My husband is going to love you..and well..and so am I! Thanks for sharing it.
