The Daily Cookie ~ Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

With the original recipe taken from Canadian Living's October 2000 issue, this cookie makes you feel less guilty after all that chocolate you scarfed down over Halloween. (well, ME anyway) I increased the butter and added some cinnamon.

1 cup butter (the original recipe says 3/4 cup, but I found this too dry)
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant-I use quick oats)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/4 cup sesame seeds

In a bowl beat together the butter and sugar until well combined; add egg and vanilla, continuing to beat until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir into the butter mixture until combined. Stir in the oats, coconut, and sesame seeds.

Drop by tablespoons onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes, until the edges are nice and golden brown.

Makes about 3 dozen.
