I recently created a special cookie for my Joshua. He loves my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so I used the oatmeal dough as the base. He is also in love with everything lime, so I added in lime zest and a couple drops of fresh lime juice. I wasn’t sure how the juice would take to the cookies, so I just added a little. I had a good thing going, so I continued on.
½ c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
Zest of 1-2 limes (I used 2)
A couple drops of fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/4 c. oats
About 3/4 cup coconut
About 1 cup white chocolate chunks (or chips)
Cream the butter with the sugars until soft and creamy, using a mixer. Add in egg and vanilla. Add in lime zest and juice. Mix briefly. In a separate bowl combine the salt, baking powder, soda, flour. Add to wet ingredients. Mix until blended. Add your oats and then your coconut and chocolate.
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes! Don’t let them get too done…they are better when they are soft!
