Sweets for my sweet
I had bookmarked this recipe from the latest edition of Food & Wine magazine and with nothing else to do last night I decided to give it a try. I changed it slightly given what I had on hand, but they were still great. In an effort not to eat them all myself, I sent Craig to work with a big tupperware full - hopefully his coworkers will help us finish them!

Two-Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Food & Wine Magazine; Recipe by Lisa Yockelson
June 2006 (pg 65)
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white-chocolate chips
3/4 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.
