Coconut Delight Oreo Fudge Cremes

If you like coconut, you’ll like these Oreos.  I like to take things like this and make something else with them—kind of like Anna at Cookie Madness did recently with brownies.  She put these cookies inside some brownies.  They look great!  After seeing her post about them, I was on a mission to find them and make chocolate chip cookies with them.  That is my go-to treat to play around with—well, that and Rice Krispies Treats and brownies.  You can do so much with them.  I’ve added all kinds of things to those three goodies.  Yet Kevin has said to me, “Can’t you just make regular boxed brownies or plain Rice Krispies treats?”  How boring is that?  And how unethical of me?  Like it would look good to post here on my blog boxed brownies!  Like I’d ever even entertain the idea of posting plain Rice Krispies treats.  Anyway, let’s not get in to all of that!

Cookies—I made cookies.  I used my favorite chocolate chip cookies recipe, but to make things a little bit easier, instead of the “fancy” flours those cookies use, bread flour and cake flour, I used all purpose flour.  Oh, I changed up a few other things, but knew by using that favorite recipe as a base, these would come out great, too.  They are good enough that I ate a few bites of the cookie dough (I think I like cookie dough more than a cookie!  Shhh!), but after that, I’ve steered clear of the cookies because I’m, once again/still, trying not to eat too many things like that.  Boring!  I know.

At least I’m here to share the cookies (photos and recipe at least) with you. ;)  That and I was practically yelled at by a friend and fellow blogger, Suzanne, at Thru the Bugs on My Windshield, for not getting the post up for these as soon as I posted a teaser photo of them on Facebook on Saturday.  So here you go, Suzanne. 

Coconut Delight Oreo Fudge Chocolate Chunk Cookies, by Katrina, Baking and Boys!

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut

5 ounces (12 cookies) Coconut Delight Oreo Fudge Cremes, chopped

4 ounces (3/4 cup) dark chocolate chunks or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Scrape sides of bowl.  Add egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.  Scrape sides of bowl again.  In a medium sized bowl, whisk together to sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat just until combined.  Stir in the coconut, cookies and chocolate with a spatula.  Scoop cookie dough into desired-sized balls on baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Let cookies sit on the baking sheet for a couple minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.
