|Coconut Oatmeal Cookies with Golden Raisins|
The Back in the Day Bakery cookbook is one of my favorites (for another great recipe, check out the Drunken Blondies from the cookbook!), and it's easy to see why with recipes like this one. Like I said, I healthified the original recipe and made the cookies much smaller than what you'd find in the bakery, but only so you can eat six at once, which is probably the equivalent of one bakery cookie ;) If you're the type to scoff at raisins in cookies, throw some chocolate or white chocolate chips in there instead!
4. Stir in the coconut and raisins, mixing just until combined. Cover dough and chill for at least one hour.
5. When ready to bake, drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets and sprinkle with cane sugar, if desired. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are cooked through and golden brown.
