These cookies have a great coconut flavor. You can use all butter, if you prefer.
Original recipe makes 3 dozen cookies
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat shortening, butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in another bowl until smooth. Beat eggs into butter mixture one at a time, adding coconut extract and vanilla extract with the last egg. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture and fold in coconut, pecans, semisweet chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips.
- Scoop up dough by spoonfuls and roll into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten dough balls slightly.
- Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
