Magic 5 Cookies

These are my new favorite cookie! They have everything I love in them and they were so chewy and delicious.  Everyone was raving about them as they should have been.  I thought some people might not like them because of the coconut but it just added a nice sweetness and texture, they weren’t overly coconut flavored.  This recipe was adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp molasses
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and oats in a medium size bowl.  In a stand mixer using the paddle attachment cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar.  Cream together for 2 minutes or until smooth. Add in the eggs one at a time and beat on high until combined scrapping down sides as you go.  Mix in the vanilla and molasses until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet on low speed until combined. Stir in the milk chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, sweetened shredded coconut and pecans. Chill dough for at least 1 hour.  Heat oven to 350. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.  Roll a spoonful of cookie dough into a ball and place on the cookie sheet, repeat with the remaining dough. Bake for 10 minutes, the middles will still look very soft.  Remove and let sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.
