Choco-coconut cookies

Chocolate Coconut Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chunks
  • 1 3/4 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 3/4 shopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Put butter and sugars in the bowl of a electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  2. Mix in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and slat into a bowl.
  4. Mix into butter mixture on low speed until well combined. Stir in chocolate, coconut, and walnuts.
  5. Scoop batter and drop onto baking sheets lined with parchment (or sprayed with cooking spray), spacing 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly, and bake until set about 10 minutes.
These are a nice change. Kind of like no-bake cookies with the cocoa and coconut, only you bake these babies.
