So... the madness of my life continues.
With the move in high gear, I barely have anything left in my kitchen - but I managed to make a pasta salad and an appetizer for a family party this weekend.
However, that is not what I am sharing with you today. I wanted to post this recipe for chocolate chip coconut cookies that I made while Lauren Vittles was here.
I know, I know - my obsession with coconut is bordering on obscene at this point.
But there is a method to my madness. Lauren's husband Tyler housed about 75% of the batch single-handedly, and 'hinted' (not-so-subtly) to her that he is hoping she'll make some.
And by 'some,' I mean like... a truck load. ASAP.
But I can't say I blame him - these are pretty awesome!
Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies
- 1/2 C. (1 stick) butter
- 1/2 C. white sugar
- 1/4 C. light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 t. vanilla extract
- 1 C. flour
- 1/2 t. baking soda
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 C. semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 C. sweetened flaked coconut
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, 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. Makes about 3 dozen.
