Old-Fashioned Dad's Cookies
Grandma's original recipe, these plain-seeming cookies are rich in flavour and tradition.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp fine sea salt (or ½ tsp kosher salt)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 375°
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
In a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugars. Add eggs, then vanilla. Alternatively, you can mix them all together by hand in a large bowl.
Add flour mixture to the sugar-butter mixture. Stir until combined. Add coconut and oats. Stir in until dispersed evenly. I like to use my hands for this last step.
Drop from a tablespoon onto a parchment paper lined cookie tray. Bake for 15 munites, or until tan at the edges and golden brown all over.
