Nan’s Everyman’s (Not from a Can) Cookie

IMG_5293 IMG_5295

Firstly, I know it is an odd title, but these cookies are so awesome that they had to have an awesome name. Nan is my grandmother. Also, this is everyman’s cookie because every man should have this cookie, and you can put any thing you want in it. The last part of the name is probably obvious, so I will skip to how it tastes… which is delectable! They are some of the best homemade cookies I have ever had! In the recipe it said I could put anything I wanted in the cookies  (up to a cup worth) so I decided to go with chocolate chips and coconut. I wasn’t getting too much coconut, but I only put in 1/3 of a cup of it so if you decide to use it, do more than I did. Also we put in two cups of oatmeal which I think is a little too much so do less of that. In all it was great and the salt we put in had just the right amount. I will suggest this to anyone, and I hope you try these at home.

  1. Henry I am so glad you like those cookies,they are ag GUIs favorite too,he really likes coconut.I wonder what Nate would put in his.Funnily enough I don’t much like margarine but I find it works really well in cookies.It is that extra bit of flour that makes them chewy,so if you decide to have a crisp type cookie don’t put the extra flour in.Pretty soon now I am going to start making shortbread for Christmas– for you!
