2 1/2 dozen cookies
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut flakes
  • For garnish:
  • 8 ounces white chocolate, melted
  • 3/4 cup toasted, shredded coconut flakes
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the baking powder, baking soda, flour and salt. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy with a hand held electric mixer. Beat in the egg. Add the dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Fold in the oats, vanilla extract and shredded coconut flakes.

Form walnut-sized balls of the mixture and drop 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined sheet pans. Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes until the bottoms of the cookies are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely.

When the cookies are cool, dip them halfway into the melted white chocolate and then into the toasted shredded coconut flakes. Set them down onto parchment paper-lined sheet pans to dry completely.

I followed some other reviews and altered the recipe... 1 1/2c Flour 1 1/2 stick butter 1c sugar 2 eggs Also used old fashioned oats, all I had. ...... I made a little bit bigger at first but stick to a walnut size because they do expand... Ive never had luck with white chocolate and getting it into a creamy consistency so when i spread it on with a spatula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking to use up a bag of white chocolate chips, I was excited to find a recipe by Paula Deen. I did not read the reviews as everything Paula makes is usually pretty good. The cookies are dry and too crumbly. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I would not make these again. The entire batch went in the trash. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cookie has the potential to be really good but has such an overpowering BUTTER taste! I thought 2 sticks of butter was too much but I made it as directed anyway. Next time I'll try just 1 stick of butter and add 2 eggs (instead of 1. It is definitely worth trying to alter it to taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They have good taste but they definatly need the white chocolate coating because they are to dry and bland with out it. I agree with the other reviews that 1 egg and 2 1/4 cups flour is not right. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this cookie, so I was surprised it had such low ratings. I compared the recipe that's listed here to a recipe I used to an older one I had printed out. The old recipe only called for 1 1/2 c. flour, so hopefully that will fix the crumbly, dry texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
best dog biscuits ever...bad cookie!!! too dry, too crumbly, and wouldn't flatten. at least my dog likes them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were too dry I flatten them I . Were not at all like they looked on Paula's show. I should have known that one egg was not enough and 2 1/4 cups flour would make them too dry. Food network please send me the corrected recipe. ALL item not reviewed by moderator and published
WELL...I should have read all the reviews before making this recipe. I scored big points for the presentation-but the cookies themselves were termed as 'sawdust bites...' My brother discovered if you let the cookie sit in milk for a minute they're very tasty...I burned the white chocolate for lack of attention and used dark chocolate instead. The tops were very tasty :) Not one I will remake soon though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
very good, not as tasty a i thought they would be, but everyone that tried one loves them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
