Swedish Oatmeal Drops Recipe

A cousin of mine from Sweden shared this recipe while working as a cook in the U.S. I like these cookies because they adapt well to whatever nuts I have on hand.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + standing Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:33 servings


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • 1. In a large bowl, pour butter over oats. Stir to coat; let stand for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla; pour over oat mixture. Combine the flour, coconut, nuts and baking powder; gradually add to the oat mixture and mix well.
  • 3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: 5-1/2 dozen.
