Am posting this recipe for safe keeping, as I keep misplacing the magazine clipping this recipe is on! I haven't tried the recipe yet, but these are definitely on my to-do list! Cooking time is per cookie sheet.
- 550 ml all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 250 g margarine, melted
- 150 ml sugar
- 150 ml brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 200 g semi-sweet chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate)
- 100 ml desiccated coconut
- Preheat oven to 175 C.
- Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
- Let the melted margarine cool a bit, and add the sugars, beating well.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Add vanilla, stir to combine.
- Sift the flour mixture into the batter, add chocolate chips and coconut.
- Stir to combine.
- Drop by heaping teaspoonsfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets, 2 inches apart.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 13-15 minutes.
Very good! Nicely moist and soft cookies. (I forgot the coconut though.)These are quite chocolaty. It gave me 2 dozen of nicely sized cookies.
I halved the recipe because I hardly ever want that many cookies at once, and got 16 good-sized cookies. I can't remember whether I did the conversion, or just said the heck with it and baked them at 350F; anyway, they were done after 13 min. at that temperature. They are very tasty and certainly easy to make. The only thing I didn't care for about them was the coconut. There isn't really enough to make them crunchy, just enough to have dry, chewy strings scattered through the cookies. Maybe it was the coconut I used, but next time I'm going to leave it out entirely, and I'm betting I'll like them even better.
I just finished making these great chocolate cookies. They are delicious and such a comfort food. I followed the directions to the T and it was easy, tasty and a keeper. I got 3 dozen cookies.
