I must be honest.. I decided to try a brand new recipe with my brand new mixer so I chose oatmeal coconut cookies. Oatmeal cookie dough is my favorite so I was pretty stinkin' happy with this ;) However, my cookies didn't turn out like the ones in the picture. After reading some reviews I decided to stick to the recipe exactly as stated since she had also made hers in AZ. They don't taste bad or anything, they just weren't what I was expecting. But by golly I had fun during the process because my mixer basically did all the work! For the last batch I even added some chocolate chips which made the cookies just the kind of yummy I was hoping for. Apparently my husband agreed since I got a much better reaction when he tried them with the chocolate chips! My favorite is still my dad's secret oatmeal cookie recipe. Gets better every time! Enjoy friends! Let me know if you can get these cookies to look as beautiful as the ones on this blog.
