Choconut CookiesMonica whipped up a batch of these fluffy, moist cookies — and the family devoured them before we had a chance to save any for tomorrow. Tasty mix of chocolate and coconut, sure to please.

Ingredients

  • 1 C butter
  • 1/2 C white sugar
  • 1/2 C light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 T milk
  • 2-1/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 C semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 C flaked, sweetened coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and milk.
  4. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into the creamed mixture.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips and coconut. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 8–10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.

Variation

  • Use 2 cups white chocolate chips in place of 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips.
  • Use 2 cups butterscotch chips in place of 2 cups chocolate chips.
  • Use 1 cup butterscotch chips and 1 cup chocolate chips in place of 2 cups chocolate chips.
