It seems like I make a lot of cookies and desserts that have chocolate in them. Well, this cookie had white chocolate in it; does that count. The combination of flavors in this cookie will wow you. Add these to your Christmas cookie list.
Cranberry Coconut Chip Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup vanilla baking chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup flaked coconut (I used sweetened)
Heat oven to 350F. In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour, oats and baking powder. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms. Stir in chips, cranberries and coconut.
Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until set. Cool on wire racks.
