Coconut Cookies with Chocolate Chips

Wednesday, November 23, 2011
I love coconut and chocolate and these cookies are two of the best ingredients and make best the perfect combinations of flavor.

This cookie is simple, however, we use a secret ingredient for a little more texture, crushed cornflakes.

I have tried so many recipes over the last 20 years and these are so much better than any other coconut cookie out there.

Chocolate chips whether milk, semi-sweet or even another flavor white, or butterscotch chips are all a nice change also.

Keep in mind you will need to make toasted coconut by baking in the oven or microwaving it so do this ahead of time first and cool it.
