Oh my gosh.
Since butterscotch and coconut go together so well, I decided to throw some coconut into these oatmeal scotchies, and change up just a few other things because I love you.
I ALSO love these cookies, by the way.
Hope there's no jealousy goin' on derrrrrrrrrrr.
Oh and I forgot to include an important detail. They're freaking ADDICTING!
Lock up your bikinis, people. It's just not gonna happen.
But I'm really not.
These beauties are perfectly chewy yet soft, with chunks of butterscotch and flecks of coconut in every scrum-diddly-umptious bite.
Coconut Oatmeal Scotchies
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c.(2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 c. quick or old-fashioned oats
1/3 c. shredded coconut
1 c. butterscotch chips
In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined. Fold in the oats, shredded coconut, and butterscotch chips. Mix until combined. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1-2 hours. When the dough is finished refrigerating, preheat the oven to 375ºF. On a greased cookie sheet, drop the dough by tablespoonfuls. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
