Oatmeal Cocoanut Crisps

Home | Recipes | O


  • 2 c Butter
  • 2 c Brown sugar
  • 2 c White sugar
  • 2 Teas vanilla
  • 4 Eggs
  • 3 c Sifted flour (I never sift)
  • 2 Teas salt
  • 2 Teas baking soda
  • 6 c Quick oats
  • 1 1/2 c Cocoanut


Cream together butter and sugars until fluffy. Stir in vanilla, then add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift together flour, salt, and soda. (I just stir together.) Add to creamed misture. Stir in rolled oats and cocoanut. Drop by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto well-greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Cool on rack.
**OR**omit cocoanut, divide dough into thirds. Add 1/3 cup cocoanut to a third, add 1/3 cup raisins to a third, and add 1/3 cup chopped nuts to the final third. **OR** you can just omit cocoanut and add nothing.
This recipe makes 14 to 16 dozen depending on how big a spoonful you drop. They freeze MAGNIFICENTLY, actually taste better, brings out the butter flavor or something. Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #260
