Wild Iris Inn Cookies

I didn't know that I'd ever come across a recipe that could cause me to stray from my Courtney Cookies. I haven't baked cookies in quite a while. However, we have new neighbors and it is something I like to do to welcome folks into our community. I may have to try these ones out - and quickly give them away before we scarf them all up. These are different than my fav cookie recipe - this is a cookie with a LOT in every bite. Many ingredients that just keep you going, mmmm, what is that?, yummmmm...

We just stayed at the Wild Iris Inn in LaConner. These babies were left for us in our room each day. By the second day, we were actually looking forward to them. Thanks to innkeeper, Lori, for sharing the recipe!


Blend until creamy:
2 c butter, melted
2 c brown sugar
2 c sugar

4 eggs
2 t vanilla
3 t water

Beat until well mixed.
In another bill mix together:

4 c flour
2 t baking powder
2 t salt
2 t baking soda

Then add:

2 c white chocolate chips
2 c semisweet chocolate chips
3 c coconut
3 c dried cranberries
2 c chopped walnuts
2 c old-fashioned oats
3 c granola (any or recipe that follows)

Mix wet and dry ingredients together until blended. When well mixed, shape into balls and bake on an un-greased parchment paper lined cookie sheet at 300-325 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until just turning brown around the edges. Then, prepare to be in heaven - ENJOY!


24 c (1 bag) of oatmeal
4 c chopped almonds
3 c shredded coconut
1 c sesame seeds
1 c sunflower seeds
2 c canola oil
2 c honey
Hazelnut syrup

Mix everything together (except hazelnut syrup). Spread on two large pans lined with parchment paper. Bake 15 minutes at 325 degrees. Stir mixture. Bake approximately another 10 minutes. Spray mixture with hazelnut syrup spray (bottled latte syrup - put dispenser pump in bottle and spray granola, mix) - bake five more minutes. Let cool and store in airtight container.

Thanks for the recipe I have made these a few times the last time was seven gallons of dough! We loved these and everyone else did too!
We made Christmas plates on vintage plates with nice clear wrap and fancy ribbon.
Had to share these with all my friends.
