Coconut Cookies

 

Mmmm. These were a rainy day concoction, because what better weather to make cookies is there, really?

Ok, well in Alberta there are snowy days, that definitely counts as a cookie baking day.

Days full of sleet….days full of fog……evenings full of rain that turns into freezing ice from hell.

Loooove Alberta!

All that cookie baking time. Nine months out of the year. Sigh.

 

Ingredients Needed:

1 cup of butter
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp coconut extract
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 cups of flaked coconut
1/2 to 1 cup of chocolate chips

Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter,sugars,eggs and coconut extract together until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the dry ingredients and mix completely.

Time for the coconut and then add in the chocolate chips.

Bake for 9-11 minutes in the 350 degree oven, until they are beautifully browned. These are best slightly underbaked and very chewy.

You can omit the chocolate chips if you want just a pure buttery, coconutty golden cookie goodness. That’s what these are, pure buttery coconut taste. If you don’t like either of those-and if you don’t whassa matter wit you?- then these are not the cookie for you.

Oh, but these were definitely the cookies for us on a rainy Alberta day.
