White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

My sons and grandsons manage our ranch...and they always seem to have one hand in the cookie jar—especially when I bake these crunchy morsels! Away from the kitchen, I enjoy my large garden and our fast-growing family.

    delicous!! Yes, they come out flat, but the taste is great! Ate two of them standing over the oven. I didn't have coconut extract, so I subbed some almond extract, and it tasted fine.

    These tasted great but are really flat. I almost didn't take them to the event I made them for but decided to anyway. They were a hit.

    Very, very good. Moist, yet crunchy on the outside like I like it. My 3 young kids and my husband loved them. We ate almost a half batch in one night.

    My family doesn't like coconut, so I left out the coconut and coconut extract. They are delicious!
