Ahhh, summertime. From the shorelines and lakes of Maine and up into the White Mountains of New Hampshire (and the Green Mountains of Vermont), through Old Cape Cod PLUS the small towns of Connecticut and Rhode Island — during the high season in New England, our towns, inns, and hotels are full of tourists from everywhere. Everyone wants to forge new memories of old New England. These are the days when a busy innkeeper needs to have a solid personal list of go-to crowd-pleasing recipes they can rely on to keep their guests satisfied. This easy Oatmeal Cookie recipe with Heath® Bits ‘O Brickle and shredded coconut fits the bill: A chewy, buttery, delicious treat best served warm just minutes out of the oven!

Being a New England Innkeeper, especially in a widely known tourist town, isn’t a conventional job. It’s a lifestyle.

There’s a seasonality to it. There’s a time of year when the business hums; an extended series of busy weeks when you need to give your all. It’s an endurance test and a depth of experience is what helps you get through the high season. An outgoing personality. Muscle memory. Management acumen. Organizational skills. Plus, when it comes to innkeeping, it always helps to have twenty or thirty proven-winner baked good recipes (like this Oatmeal Cookie Recipe) that you can rotate through to keep a varied array of fresh-from-the-oven treats available for your guests.

These are the tried and true. The recipes you barely need to think about. The ones you can whip up in between phone calls, and schedule making, and note taking, and greeting guests. The recipes you’ve cooked a million times over. The recipes everyone asks you for copies of. These Coconut Toffee Oatmeal Cookies are one of those recipes.

There’s something about cookies with oatmeal in them that conjures warm memories of New England! This Coconut Toffee Oatmeal Cookies recipe is always a big hit with our guests at the inn!

Give them a try — we’re sure you (and the lucky friends you share them with) will love these cookies just as much as our long line of satisfied guests!
