Loaded Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Loaded Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
Sometimes it’s fun to have a freshly baked cookie with all of our favorite cookie ingredients: pecans, chocolate chips, coconut, and raisins. These oatmeal cookies fill the bill and they are soft and chewy at the same time. Since drop cookies are fast and easy, there is no excuse not to make them right away and fill up the cookie jar.
These cookies aren’t fancy, but they are good, especially straight from the oven. You can add your own favorite ingredients to the basic cookie dough, such as white chocolate chips, toffee bits, dates, dried fruit, or substitute walnuts or almonds for pecans. The flavors are limited to your imagination and what you happen to have on your pantry shelves.

5 dozen cookies

3/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup flaked coconut
3/4 cup chopped pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Cream the shortening, butter, and sugars until light. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Measure the flour, baking soda, and salt into a fine strainer set over the shortening mixture and shake through.
  4. Mix on low speed until thoroughly incorporated.
  5. Add the oatmeal and mix well; stir in the chocolate chips, raisins, coconut, and pecans.
  6. Scoop tablespoonfuls of the dough onto parchment or Silpat lined baking sheets.
  7. Bake about 12 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
  8. Transfer to cooling racks and when cool, store in an airtight container.
