(My inspiration: Friday Is Cake Night)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, light or dark
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups flour
2 cup chocolate chips (if you like less chocolaty cookies then reduce to 1 cup)
3/4 cup flaked coconut, sweetened or unsweetened
Preheat oven to 375
Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray
In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder and vanilla. Mix. Add egg and beat until well combined. Add flour and beat on lowest speed to combine. Add chocolate chips and coconut. Beat on lowest speed to combine.
Using a cookie scoop or a spoon drop rounded dollops of dough onto prepared baking sheets. 12 per sheet.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 12 minutes.
Remove from oven and transfer to work surface to cool.
I used a plastic cutting board for cooling.
Repeat until dough is gone. This made 30 smallish cookies for me. Next time I hope to have almonds on hand!
Super chocolaty, chewy goodness!
The perfect companion to a cold glass of milk, a fresh cup of joe and a good read!
