Happy Labor Day! I hope you are out having some end of summer fun. It sure has been a fast summer. Coconut seems summery to me, so this was a great recipe for the weekend. The blondies from Baking Bites looked so delicious, but I went with a drop cookie version of this recipe. The cookies ended up very chewy, and it was easy to eat 3 or 4 at a time. They came together very easily, too.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Beat in egg, followed by vanilla extract. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then stir in the chocolate chips and shredded coconut.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
Yields 18 cookies
