chewy coconut oatmeal cookies

My plan was to make these and put them in the freezer.

The freezer part is going to be tough.

Chewy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
*adapted from 'The Best of The Best' cookbook

1 C. butter
1 C. white sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 C. rolled oats
1 1/2 C. flour
1 C. coconut
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. honey
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream together butter and sugars.

Add egg and vanilla.

Stir in remaining ingredients. Mix well.

Roll into small balls (I used a 1 Tbsp. measuring spoon) and place on greased cookie sheet. Do not press down. Bake at 350 for 10-12 min.

I halved this recipe and still got 30 cookies out of it. The original recipe calls for molasses not honey, and I also omitted allspice and nutmeg (1 tsp. of each) from the original.

So. Darn. Good.

I must go put these bad boys in the freezer and control my compulsion to eat all 30 cookies at once.
