Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Easter makes me think of many important things. One less important is coconut. I have also been craving a good chewy oatmeal cookie. Let’s combine those two thoughts, yes, wonderful.  So I started making the chewy coconut oatmeal cookies and in my pantry there was a lone half bag of butterscotch chips. Well, if I am going to add some chips, half a bag isn’t enough, we will need half a bag of white chocolate chips, perfect!

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup coconut
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter, shortening, and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mix well. Add coconut and chips. Bake for 10 minutes or until barely golden. Remove from oven immediately, overcooked cookies won’t be chewy.
