Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been in a cookie baking mood lately. This is the second batch already this week! This recipe has become a favorite since I found it on All Recipes a few years ago.

 I like the way it bakes up....nice an chewy in the middle and full of chocolate, pecans, and coconut in every bite.

They store well and stay nice and soft in the middle for a long time. The recipe makes a nice size batch, and also freezes well.

I like to stick them in our lunches for work...a nice treat to look forward to all morning!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 c. oats
2 c. chocolate chips
1 c. nuts
1 c. coconut

Mix the butter and sugars together, add the milk, eggs, vanilla, and stir well. Add the flour and baking soda. Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets before removing.
