Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 3/4 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup coconut
1 cup craisins
1 cup white chocolate chips

Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in an electric mixer. Add in vanilla and eggs. Next add salt, flour, baking soda, and oatmeal. Stir in walnuts, coconut, craisins and white chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-13 minutes.

I got this recipe from Sharon, a co-worker of mine when I worked at the credit union. She made these for me on my birthday and they are soooo yummy. The craisins and white chocolate chips were my addition to the recipe and these cookies are just as good without them if you don't have them on hand.

  1. Allisha, have you ever tried making this recipe with regular chocolate chips? Just wondering. I love dried cranberries. I've put them in my oatmeal with quartered, sliced bananas since we've been here in Switzerland. To me oatmeal is good but now adding fresh or frozen berries, etc, it's delicious. = ) Love ya, Kris
