Dunking Platter Cookies
Yields: 8 dozen cookies
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 12 min
2 cups butter, melted
2 cups granulated
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
2 cups raisin bran cereal
4 cups all-purpose
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (of your choice)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Either lightly grease or line cookie sheets with parchment paper> or use the Silicone Baking Mats> to prevent the cookies from sticking.
In the large bowl of your electric mixer on medium
speed, combine the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, oatmeal, and raisin bran cereal.
In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking
powder, and baking soda. Using medium speed of your electric mixer, slowly add
the flour mixture to the cookie batter until combined.
On low speed, mix in the raisins, coconut, chocolate chips, and nuts just until all ingredients are combined.
Using a 1 1/2-inch scoop, drop the cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown (do not over bake). Remove from oven and let cookies set on the
cookie sheets for 1 minute to cool (they will fall apart when you try moving them if you don't let them cool slightly). Remove from cookie
sheets and let finish cooling on wire cooling racks.
Yields 8 dozen cookies.
