Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

I know, I'm so creative with naming things.

These cookies are my uncle's favorite. I made them as an experiment one day, you know- one of those throw random things in the bowl and hope they come out okay things. They came out perfect, and always make an appearance at our family gatherings now!

Unless you don't like coconut or butterscotch, I can pretty much guarantee you will love these. Not to toot my own horn or anything... but it's true, they're so chewy and just perfectly perfect. Like a cookie should be.

Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Coconut Cookies
Pre-heat oven to 375.

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 (11oz) bag butterscotch chips
1 (11oz) bag chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened coconut, packed

Cream butter and sugars together. Add in eggs and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.

Add in flour mixture, and mix on low just until combined.

Add in Oats, chips and coconut, and mix with mixer on low just until combined.

  1. Just made these, thanks to you! They're DELISH! Have a great weekend! Smiles from Portland, OR.

  2. I wonder how these would be with craisins.... Thinking about dividing the batter in half and doing half with butterscotch chips and the other with craisins. Do you think that would effect the moisture in the cookie?
