Cookie Batter Recipe
*1 cup softened butter (or 2 sticks)
*1 cup light brown sugar, packed
*1 1/2 tsp baking powder
*1 1/2 cups flour
*1/4 tsp salt (I always do just a pinch)
*1 cup oatmeal
*1 cup shredded coconut
*1 cup chopped pecans
*1/2 cup crushed corn flakes (I didn't have corn flakes so I used rice crispies)
-Preheat oven to 350degrees.
-Cream butter and add sugar, beat until light and fluffy.
-Add egg and mix completely.
-Sift flour, salt and baking powder together.
-Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.
-Combine oatmeal, coconut, pecans and corn flakes and hand mix into the batter.
-Add to baking sheet lined with parchment paper (easy cleanup and the cookies won't stick or burn.. unless you leave them in the oven too long!)
-Bake for 9 minutes then rotate and bake another minute.
-Cool on pan for 3 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
-Ice your cookies when they are completely cooled (or you'll have a mess)
*2 cups sifted powdered sugar
*2 tbsp butter
*1 tsp vanilla (or coconut, almond .. whatever you'd like the icing flavor to be)
*Approx. 1 tbsp hot water
-In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add vanilla.
-Mix in powdered sugar and correct consistency with hot water.
-Top each cooking with about 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp icing.
