I like this recipe because it makes a big batch, because the cookies are jumbo in size they have you make more dough so that you get a lot of cookies. If you decide to make them regular size you get even more cookies. If you don't want 3 or 4 dozen then I suggest cutting the recipe in half.
These cookies turned out so good and tasted amazing. I don't know if it was because it's been so long since I made cookies or what but I am loving these!
I definitely suggest giving these a try. I had some leftover chocolate chips with peanut butter stuffed in them so I threw some of those in the cookies as well and it gives it even more flavour!
I got this recipe idea from http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2014/12/jumbo-coconut-chocolate-chip-cookies.html
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2-2/3 cups flaked coconut
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup milk chocolate chips
- (optional) 6 ounces white candy coating, coarsely chopped
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time mixing well in between. Beat in vanilla.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the coconut and chips.
For jumbo cookies, shape 3 tablespoonfuls of dough into a ball; repeat with remaining dough.
Place balls of dough 3 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
For smaller cookies, shape about 1½ tablespoons of dough into a ball and placed on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
