If you love thin, crisp-edged, buttery, chewy, sweet and salty cookies, these Buttery Coconut Oatmeal Cookies are for you!


  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup sweetened coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To the bowl of an electric mixer, add oats, flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, coconut, salt and baking soda.  Mix on medium low speed for 1 minute.
  3. In the meantime, add butter and corn syrup to a small saucepan and heat until melted over medium high heat.  Bring the mixture to a boil for one minute and then remove from heat.
  4. Slowly drizzle the butter mixture into the flour mixture, mixing on medium low speed. The mixture will be crumbly.  Add the egg, and mix again until a dough comes together.
  5. Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls, and place on the parchment lined baking sheet (12 per sheet).   Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown, with a slightly pale center.  They will brown quickly, so keep a close watch toward the end of the baking time.
