How To Make Best Evers

Here is a recipe that will become the “best ever” cookie and homemade delight.

You ask, why are they called “best evers” -- well, there are two reasons. If you are eating a “best ever” cookie, it will be the best-ever homemade cookie you will be eating that day. And, secondly, if you have a little bit of this and a little bit of that of leftover nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, coconut, or anything else that goes well in cookies, you can use up those ingredients, making it a best-ever way to clean out your pantry.

Step 1

You will need:

  • Bowls for mixing
  • Baking sheets for baking

Step 2


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, place about ½ cup white sugar for rolling dough in.

Step 3


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup margarine or butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups quick oatmeal
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ t salt
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 2 T baking powder

Step 4

Prepare cookies:

  • Cream sugars, margarine (or butter), and eggs together.
  • Add oatmeal, nuts, coconut, and vanilla.
  • Gently blend.
  • Add flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder until blended.
  • Roll about 2 T of dough into walnut-sized balls.
  • Roll in white sugar.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees about 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.

The above is the basic “best ever” cookie recipe, but no one is likely to object if you would like to add chocolate chips, raisins, M&Ms or pistachios.
