Oatmeal and Coconut

We leave tomorrow for a little weekend trip to the smoky mountains. Of course we will need cookies for the drive. I toasted some coconut, stirred in oatmeal and lots of brown sugar and came up with these!

Coconut Oatmeal Scotchies

1 stick butter (softened)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup butterscotch morsels
3/4 cup toasted coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cream the butter with the sugars. Add the egg, and the vanilla. Combine the salt, baking soda, and the flour. Add to the butter mixture. Stir in the oats. Mix in the morsels and coconut.
Roll dough into balls and bake on greased cookie sheets for about 8 minutes. :)
