Two Chip Oatmeal Cookies are from pastry chef and cookbook author (and very wonderful person, all around!), Lisa Yockelson. They originally appeared in Food & Wine Magazine. Perfect for coconut lovers, they are thin, chewy, and less sweet than most chocolate chip cookies. I did make one minor change. Instead of using plain chocolate chips, I used a bag of Hershey's Premier Dark Chocolate Chips with Macadamias.
Two Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (140 to 150 grams)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 12 tablespoons sticks unsalted butter, room temperature (170 grams)
- ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar (125 grams)
- ½ cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg white
- 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup white-chocolate chips
- ¾ cup sweetened shredded coconut
- In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter with the brown sugar at medium speed until blended. Beat in the granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the whole egg, egg white and vanilla. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients, in 2 additions. With a large wooden spoon, mix in the oats, semisweet and white-chocolate chips and the coconut. Cover the cookie dough and refrigerate for 1 hour, until chilled.
- Preheat the oven to 375°. Line 3 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a rounded tablespoon, spoon mounds of dough onto the baking sheets, at least 3 inches apart. Bake the cookies for about 14 minutes, until golden and just set. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
