These cookies have become a regular in my kitchen since I started making them. It seems I kept finding reason after reason to make another batch, until I ran out of coconut! I will be heading to the market to pick up more coconut in order to make more Ranger Cookies this week!
100g of butter, softened
1 cup of azucar rubia (substitute half white, half brown)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/8 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of unsweetened grated coconut
1/2 cup of roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped (substitute other nuts like pecans or walnuts)
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Stir in the vanilla and the egg. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stirring to combine. Gently stir in the coconut, peanuts, and chocolate chips.
- Spoon dough by the tablespoonful onto a large baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool cookies for 2 minutes on the baking sheets before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Yield: Makes 24-30
