These cookies were great, they are nice and crisp around the outside and nice and mushy on the inside, just the way I LOVE my cookies.
Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies (From: Dinner with the Bickfords)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I subbed butterscotch chips)
- 1 cup flaked coconut
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and coconut. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
