I found this recipe 20 years ago in my mom's recipe box. It was a very old newspaper clipping, but I don't recall her ever making them. I updated it a bit and baked a cookie that my friend named by saying, "Oh, I've died and gone to heaven!"
- 1 cup softened butter
- 3⁄4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 -2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup crushed toffee pieces, candy (such as Heath, Skor, etc.)
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded coconut
- 1 1⁄2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- Cream butter until fluffy.
- Add the sugars slowly and beat well.
- Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.
- On a sheet of waxed paper thoroughly combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
- Add to the butter mix, stirring just until blended.
- Stir in toffee bits, coconut, chips, and pecans.
- Drop the dough by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 10-12 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly brown around the edges.
- Let them cool on the sheets a bit before removing to wire racks.
Don't be fooled by these cookies! When I first tried them straight out of the oven I wasn't all that impressed, I mean they were good but not "great". But surprisingly by the next day after they had cooled and sat for awhile they were much better. A good spin on just a regular old chocolate chip cookie if you like coconut, pecans and toffee. My 11 month old son thought they were fabulous! I would make these again and they baked up very nicely. Good recipe! Thanks for sharing:-)
