Another recipe to try. This is more similar to the texture of a chocolate chip cookie- never turned one of those down either! Try the different options to suit your tastes.
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 package candy orange slices
1 cup pecans, walnuts or macadamia nuts(optional)
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
In separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture.
Cut up the orange candies. If you toss them with a little flour, they won’t all stick together.
Add the candies and nuts, oats and coconut and combine well.
Roll into balls and space 2″ apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 12-20 minutes depending on desired crispness.
