Museum of Winter Oatmeal Cookies

Jane & David

David was the originator of the recipe -- sort of a cross between an oatmeal cookie and a coconut macaroon. Every time he or I made them, we kept adding just a bit more coconut, until finally -- well -- the whole package makes them coconuty scrumptious! In my new poetry book, I have a poem called "Museum of Winter" that mentions oatmeal cookies. So Judy dubbed the cookies Museum of Winter Oatmeal Cookies and served them at the book launch party. - Jane

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
cup granulated sugar
2 eggs from happy chickens
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cups whole wheat pastry flour (can use white flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups of Quaker Oats (Old Fashioned)
1 pkg Baker's coconut (14 oz.)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat well. Add flour, baking soda; mix well. Stir in oats. Drop by rounded tablespoon** onto cookie sheets that have been lightly greased. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on sheet, remove to wire rack.
