These are a favorite of my 5 year old son. They make several dozen, and they normally don't last for more than a day and a half, maybe two. (If i wasn't watching, they wouldn't last two hours.) He is my toughest critic, so I'm hoping you like them as much as he does.

How to Make Coconut Butterscotch Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Toast coconut (I use the toaster oven) until it is light golden brown
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x13 baking sheet with non-stick spray
  3. Into a large mixing bowl, mix sugar, brown sugar, soda, salt and coconut cream pudding mix. Add eggs, one at a time, rum extract, and butter and beat until smooth. Beat in 5oz coconut. Gradually add flour until well blended. Mix in butterscotch chips.
  4. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet
  5. Slightly flatten top of each ball with the back of a teaspoon and drop a pinch of the remaining toasted coconut onto each cookie
  6. Bake 12-14 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cookie pulls out clean.
  7. Place on a wire rack to cool. (Then snag one warm for yourself before everyone else gets to them, or there may be none left :) Enjoy!)
