Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups shortening
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 box (15.25 oz) Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Premium Cake & Cupcake Mix
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup cinnamon multigrain flakes cereal, slightly crushed
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat shortening and sugars with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat well.
  • 3
    Stir in cake mix. Add coconut, cereal and oats; stir until well mixed.
  • 4
    Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto large ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Sprinkle top of each with a pinch of sea salt.
  • 5
    Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown and cracked on top. Cookies will be very soft; cool 10 minutes before removing from cookie sheets. Store in covered container.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Either sweetened or unsweetened coconut flakes can be used in this recipe.
  • tip 2
    We used old-fashioned oats in this recipe, but quick-cooking oats can be used as well.
  • tip 3
    Cookies turn out best when baked one sheet at a time on middle oven rack.
  • tip 4
    Use a cookie scoop to make portioning cookie dough even faster and more consistent. A #16 scoop is the same size as a measuring 1/4 cup.
