Source: Everyday Food, April 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  2. With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Add oats, raisins, and coconut; beat just until combined.

  3. Drop level 1/4-cup measures of dough, 1 1/2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.

  4. Bake until cookies have spread and are golden brown and soft to the touch, 18 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes

Freeze unbaked cookies on baking sheet until firm, about 30 minutes. Transfer to resealable plastic bags (label and date); keep up to 6 months. Bake as many as you need (without thawing); place 1 1/2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

    Fantastic recipe! I had 1 oz less butter, half cup less sugar and flour, added 1 cup of chopped hazelnuts mixed with unsweetened coconut and 2 tablespoons milk as the mixture was a bit dry. Came out great!

    This recipe is great. Even friends who do not like coconut loved them. I did not add raisins as I really don't care for them but I am sure even with these would be awesome.

    Fantastic with lots of flexibility because it's so darn good. I have made them with cranberries, walnuts, chocolate chips....never had coconut so I have substituted and they have always been perfect. Thanks Martha!

    This is definitely a go to recipe... easy, delicious, chewy and crunchy. Each bite is to be savored, but fair warning, my husband says they are as addictive as crack!!

    Delicious! Exactly what I was looking for, nice and chewy. I was out of coconut (!) but they still turned out great. I added toasted walnuts to my recipe, about 1 cup. I also made part with chocolate chips and no raisins for my husband. Versatile and tasty!

    I absolutely love this recipe! Great easy cookies! I was weary of the coconut because I am not a fan, but it added an extra texture and made the flavor more rich. Makes a family sized batch. Oh, and I did grease my cookie sheet.
