These aren’t your typical oatmeal cookies. No raisins (woo hoo!), just the right level of sweetness, and crackly on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. There will be not a single leftover (except for your full bag of raisins) after baking up a batch. PS This recipe comes from Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar Life cookbook of amazingness.




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats
  2. Combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on high until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated, about 1 minute. Add the flour, oats, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and coconut, if using, and mix until just combined, about 30 seconds
  3. Put the confectioner’s sugar in a small bowl. Scoop and roll the dough between your palms into golf-ball-sized balls. Toss in the bowl of confectioner’s sugar until completely covered and arrange the cookies 2 to 3 inches apart on the lined baking sheets
  4. Bake the cookies for 9 to 10 minutes until golden brown and crackled. Let cool completely on pans
