These were the first cookies I had tried in search for a recipe similar to the cookies at Fresh Market. I will not be looking any farther. These are to die for delicious. My favorite so far. Easier to do than they seem. I personally placed the choc. chips, nuts, raisins, & coconut in a separate bowl until I was ready for them. I mixed them in by hand once rest was ready for them. I am high elevation, so convection (if you have it) is a must. Flatten slightly and bake. YUM! Thanks for posting Mary.
