    Default Ping: George's Cookies

    As I said, I made the dough for these last week and kept it wrapped
    and refrigerated until today. I did up the molasses to 2 Tbsp. and
    I've just sampled two of them. Wow! These are really good cookies
    and I will like not only sharing them, but keeping two dozen for my
    picky self to enjoy. Really, treally good and simple cookies, thank
    you again for these!
    ....Picky

    Coconut Oatmeal Cookies (Picky made smaller, 5 dozen)
    1 cup flour
    tsp salt
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp cinnamon
    tsp allspice
    tsp nutmeg
    2 cups sugar
    1-2 tsp molasses
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup coconut
    3 cups rolled oats
    cup toasted nuts

    1. Combine dry ingredients.
    2. Beat sugar, molasses, oil, and eggs. Add vanilla. Beat in coconut,
    then oats, then flour mixture. Dough will be stiff but moist. If it
    seems dry, add oil by teaspoons.
    3. Chill dough 2 hours or longer.
    4. Set oven to 350. Prepare baking sheets.
    5. Using a 1" scoop, scoop balls of dough onto and place on sheets
    2" apart. Flatten to disks 1/3" thick.
    6. Bake 10-12 minutes for chewy cookies. Bake 1-2 minutes longer for
    crisp cookies.

    I'm amazed the dough stayed coherent. Last time I chilled drop cookie
    dough for more than 24 hrs, they wouldn't stick together at all. Maybe
    the difference is oil vs. butter. Anyway, glad you like them.

    Perhaps you are right, butter chills to hard causing it to take longer
    getting back to smooth, whereas the oil stays much more liquid.

    I just got back home from deliveries to the Vet, my Dentist, and to
    little Chloe next door...everyone loves them! These cookies have
    earned a first place spot in my keep on hand all the time container,
    for sure.

    I use a very similar recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Butter instead
    of oil, omit the oats, halve the coconut, and increase the flour.

    I made them on Sunday, but I think I converted them back to the
    original because I used light brown sugar instead of molasses and
    white sugar. I added chocolate chips to the batter and left coconut
    out of half of it because one person didn't like coconut. Yes, it was
    very good. Thanks, George.

    PS: My 13 month old granddaughter help me make the cookies and she was
    so excited! It was the first time she got to cook for real instead of
    pretending with a bowl and spoon. We had cookie dough all over
    everything, but she was one happy little child!

    I am so jealous. My grans are nearing all grown up now and are two
    driving hours away. The eldest one, Tiara, is two years married,
    Garrett starts college this year, while Cheylin begins highschool. My
    son used to love cooking times with me as he grew up and now he is
    *the* cook for all his friends. I think that cooking, baking, and
    gathering the best food ingredients for same is one of the greater
    things we can teach our youngsters and I so miss having having one or
    a few right here for that.

    I have a feeling Tiara will be solving your problem in a couple of
    years. Hopefully, she lives close enough that you'll be able to visit
    with the newest generation as much as you wish!
