*OR* FURTHER ADVENTURES IN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE VERSIONS.
My son Malcolm (9) was home from school today with a sore throat and a headache. He didn’t feel too bad, and we had such a nice day together! He’s so much fun to be with. He’s had these cookies in his head for a while, and today we finally had time to make them. He wanted to make sugar cookies with coconut and dark chocolate chips. He made all final decisions on what went into the batter. They’re delicious!
Here’s Bill Withers’ lovely Lovely Day, because I had such a nice day with my Malcolm.
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream the softened butter with the sugars. Add the vanilla and then beat in the egg. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Then stir in the coconut and chocolate chips.
Drop by the teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 325 for about 10 minutes, till they start to brown on the bottom and they look good and done.
