|Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Coconut and Craisins|
They say not to go grocery shopping when you are hungry. Well, I broke that rule this week because I got stuck at the car shop for a couple of hours when I went in to do a simple safety test. Well, what the heck am I supposed to do for 2 hours? Of course go across the street and go grocery shopping. During lunchtime. When I hadn’t eaten anything all morning. I went down the baking aisle and found dark chocolate chunks. They called my name and found their way into my cart. Somehow they got opened and I injested at least a quarter of the bag. In order to justify my purchase I needed to make something with the chocolate instead of just eating it all. I decided to go with a chewy oatmeal cookie. But adding dark chocolate chunks wasn’t enough…I needed something else. Hence, the coconut and dried cranberries. As you can imagine, all that goodness made for some really awesome cookie dough.

Cookies with Coconut and Craisins
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare 2 cookie sheets by placing a piece of parchment paper on each (the parchment helps the cookies spread and bake evenly).
- Cream together the brown sugar, white sugar and butter (I like to use my
bosch or kitchenaid for this). The mixture should be fluffy and change
- Add in the egg and mix for about 30 seconds.
- Mix in the salt,
baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and flour. Scrape down the sides and
mix for 10 seconds more.
- Fold in the
oatmeal, chocolate chunks, coconut and craisins.
- Using a scoop form
dough into cookies and place on parchment lined cookie sheets.
- Bake for about
8-10 minutes (do NOT over bake).
- Let sit for about
2 minutes. Slide the parchment (with cookies still on it) onto
a cooling rack. Let cool for several minutes and then enjoy!

Baking powder is mentioned in Step 4 but it's not listed in the ingredients–how much do you use? Also, it says add "eggs"–is there supposed to be more than one?
