Cookies full of dried fruits, coconut, oatmeal and walnuts.
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • small pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal (not quick)
  • 2 cups mixed dried fruits ( I used dried cherries, cranberries and raisins)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup walnuts - optional
  1. Add the butter, sugar, salt, cocoa and milk to a large saucepan. Mix together and put the mixture on the stove. Bring to a full rolling boil (one that can not be stirred down) and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the oatmeal, fruit, coconut and nuts (if using). Stir to combine.
  3. Drop the cookies onto wax paper with a large tablespoon (cookies will be a little flatter) of use a scoop to make them like in the picture.
  4. Let cookies set for about 4 hours to harden. (The oatmeal will soften as they sit.)
