Coconut Lace Cookies

Coconut Lace Cookies 



*1 cup butter, softened

*1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 

*1 cup sugar

*1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

*2 large eggs

*1 teaspoon vanilla extract

*2 cups all-purpose flour

*1/2 tsp. baking powder

*1 tsp. ground cinnamon

*1 tsp. baking soda

*1/4 tsp. salt

*1 cup regular oats

*1 cup sweetened, flaked coconut

*1/2 cup white chocolate chips


*Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or grease lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. 

*Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add in peanut butter, followed by sugar and brown sugar and beat until well combined and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time, until just combined. Beat in vanilla.

*In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add into butter mixture in two additions, beating until just combined. Beat in the oats, coconut, and white chocolate chips. 

*Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until edges are golden and centers are still slightly soft. Remove and cool for 10 minutes on baking sheets. Cool completely on wire racks. Sprinkle with additional coconut, if desired.
