These are my new favorite cookie.
Apparently my family likes them too because these cookies sure didn’t stick around in the cookie jar for very long 🙂
I just love coconut! No, I mean, I really really love the stuff. I know some people hate coconut, and I’ve heard people complain about certain foods tasting like the 1970s suntan oils. Well, I’d like to confess that when I was a kid, I slathered that stuff all over me–I have the wrinkles and moles to prove it too. If it was edible, I would be making 1970s coconut scented suntan oil cookies SPF 15. I’m serious.
Yes, I’m a coconut nut. Throw chocolate into the mix, and my eyes start to roll back into my head. I’m afraid everything tastes better with chocolate. So, I give you my version of the coconut chocolate chip cookie.
