Coconut Raisin Hermits

Alright, I have been a little bit MIA from the blog in the past couple of weeks as it has been quite busy (I turned 30….eep!), but I am back and I am back with cookies!  I decided to go with Hermits which are bite size little pieces of deliciousness.  The original recipe called for several things which I didn’t have on hand so I made a few substitutions and came up with Coconut Raisin Hermits.   Feel free to toss in whatever you would like as these are very versatile.  I think next time I am going to try out some cranberries and walnuts.

These are in an out of the oven in no time and are the perfect accompaniment to a tea or coffee.

Coconut Raisin Hermits

1 cup butter, softened

1½ cups packed brown sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

½ tsp salt

¾ cup shredded coconut

1 cup raisins

1.  Preheat oven to 375º.  Cream butter and sugar together.  Beat in the eggs one at a time and add vanilla.

2.  In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and coconut together.  Mix into wet mixture.  Stir in raisins.  Drop or roll heaping teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes.

Makes about 4½ dozen
