Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg. In another bowl, whisk flour, oats and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and coconut.
  2. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/4-in. square cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  5. Freeze option: Transfer wrapped disks to a freezer container; freeze. To use, thaw dough in refrigerator until soft enough to roll. Bake as directed.
