These cookies were created by the owners of Wilderness Place Lodge, in Lake Creek, Alaska. The owners are very good friends of mine, and the culinary creations at this fishing lodge are out of this world! I promise, one of these cookies will fill you as much as a cheeseburger and fries would!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a very large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture until well incorporated. Mix in oats, then stir in the chocolate chips, nuts, coconut and raisins. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Let cookies cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

I work as a baker in a very busy cafe and this has become our most popular cookie. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!I always get a nice thick chewy cookie with consistent results everytime. I don't care for raisins, so i have never used them, but always add toffee bits instead for wonderful results. I am not understanding why some of you are getting a flat cookie, but what i do is just make sure i always use butter, make sure it is not too warm, and i never measure it out because 1 lb is 2 cups..no need to measure. I also always make sure to use a shiny aluminum sheet pan (which almost always gives the best results for cookie spreading),and i top it with parchment paper instead of greasing the sheet. I typically use a #40 scoop for reg size, or #20 for jumbo cookies. I Bake them just until set, and they are the perfect size and texture. HUGE seller. Good luck!

Okay, so I know this is my own recipe, but that makes me entitled to a review, right??? I had a friend who made these for Bunco one night, and she said she makes a batch of the dough, rolls it in saran and freezes it. Just slice and bake. There was absolutely no difference in flavor (I have had these so many times I'm definitely and expert...) and the texture was perfect. As another reviewer said, these cookies ROCK! I normally make them with heaping tablespoonfulls, so the cookies are very large, but if you want to freeze them, you can make the rolls of dough to be whatever size you want.

Saw the recipe yesterday and made them this morning - GREAT COOKIES! I actually got 7 doz. cookies using a medium-sized cookie scoop that's probably equal to about 2 Tbsp. Will definitely make these often!
