"I came up with this scrumptious recipe one day, just trying to find a way to use the bag of coconut flakes sitting in the cupboard. It was just a cross between family recipes for cookies and my own special touch of imagination. Well I'm glad that I came up with it as are my family and friends. I hope you enjoy as much as we did." — Reena B.

light brown sugar
2 1/4 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
These cookies are freaking awesome. Adding an additional 1/2 stick of butter and 2 tablespoons of milk makes them super fluffy and chewwwy. They come out rather flat otherwise.
These were just okay for us. I love coconut, and I love chocolate chip cookies, but these just didn't "wow" me. I ended up taking the majority of cookies to work, and they still didn't get eaten.
These cookies are the bomb! I'm sure I'll make them again. My mistake was in storing them in Tupperware which softened the perfectly crispy edges. Say it with me now: Tupperware for chewy, tin for crispy.
I love this recipe. This cookie is my back-up recipe for any event or family gathering. I do change the recipe a little because they tend to be a little greasy. I use half shortening and half butter instead of all butter and reduce it by at least a 1/4 cup. Also I add more coconut and instead of all semi-sweet chocolate chips I use a variety of whatever kind I have on hand. I usually use a mix of milk, white, butterscotch (i think the butterscotch really brings out the best in the cookie) and semisweet chocolate chips. I also add a little spice like nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, almond extract, or whatever sounds good. Enjoy.
I don't usually give a recipe 5 stars unless I love it. These are fantastic!! And sooooo easy! I had to adjust the sugar because all I had was sweetened coconut. I used 1/2 cup white and 1/2 brown and they were perfect. Thanks!
I hate coconut. Hate it with a passion. But someone at work asked me to make a cookie with coconut in it. I picked this recipe, and I think I am the one who ate the most of them!
Easy and delicious.
I LOVE this recipe! It tastes so yummy its crazy! I originally wanted to bake just a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe ...but I looked and looked for one that was low in fat and calories...this recipe was fairly low compared to the rest. But after I started making the cookies I relized that I had no semi-sweet chocolate chips...only buterscotch...so I used those instead...and WOAH! They are the BEST COOKIES EVER!! Yeesh they were very yummy and I have to stop myself or I will eat them all! They taste good with a nice COLD glass of milk or coffee!
FABULOUS!! these are wonderful! My husband gobbled them up, coworkers loved them, and my son kept asking for just "one more cookie please?"
a real crowd pleaser.
