Erin's Go To Cookies

Erin's Go To Cookies

I was reading this Toronto Star article about a new book that looks at relationships and baking. The story included a recipe for Erin’s go-to cookie that sounded absolutely delicious and has some of my favourite things, including chocolate, peanut butter, coconut and oatmeal. Okay, so maybe it had all of my favourite things. Anyway, it was a nice, easy recipe, and turned out about 40 delicious cookies. My only advice would be to cook them a little less than the recipe suggests, to keep them a little chewier after they cool. (If you like that kind of thing, of course.)


  1. The coconut can go thank you very much!

    • I bet any nut would be a good replacement for the coconut (though truthfully you can hardly taste it). I’m already planning to try it with chopped peanuts or walnuts in place of the coconut.

  2. THE COCONUT WAS THE BEST PART. Peanut butter was the runner up.

    But what could make them better? Possibly raisins?
