Hawaiian Cookies!

I have really enjoyed using oats in my cookies lately - it offers such a great texture and adds just a hint of flavor!

After making some awesome/tradition oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I decided to make a remix (based what I had in the pantry!).  They turned out amazing, and I have dubbed them "Hawaiian Cookies" ... not really sure why but with the coconut it seemed right.

You'll need:
1 stick of butter (room temp)
6 tablespoons os sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup of rolled oats 
3/4 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of white chocolate chips
1 cup of coconut  (if you don't like too much coconut, use 3/4 cup)

1. Preheat oven to 350 2. In a medium bowl beat butter (at room temp), sugar, and vanilla.  Beat in egg.  Slowly add in the oats.3. Add dry ingredients on low speed, until just mixed.4. Finally add in the white chocolate chips and coconut.  Mix slowly! 5. Shape dough into 1 to 1.5 inch balls and drop them onto cookie sheets (with either a baking sheet or parchment paper).  Using the back of a spoon (or your hand) slightly flatten out the top of each cookie.6. Bake for 10-12 minutes 7. Leave cookies on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
