Smorgasbord Cookies
Renamed and Adapted from “Erin’s Go-To Cookies” via the book The Happy Baker

What You’ll Need

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 egg
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ to ¾ cup coconut

The How-To

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugars and butter.
  3. Add the PB, Vanilla and Eggs
  4. In another bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking soda and salt
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture
  6. Add in the chocolate chips and coconut – the actual recipe calls for way more than what I put in, but I find that if you do that, there’s no cookie left. Up to you!
  7. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, let cool and enjoy 🙂

I’m calling these Smorgasbord cookies because I feel like they have everything fantastic in them. This makes a good amount of cookies too (I doubled the recipe that was in the book – what can I say, I like to share). I’m not as big a fan of coconut, but I think with the amount I put in, which was about a ¾ cup, I was really happy with it.
