Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I actually just do more of a palm toss)
1 teaspoon nutmeg (I actually just do more of a palm toss)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 1/4 cups flaked coconut


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and coconut extract. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and coconut. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (or until lightly golden) in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 36 cookies
