Gone to Heaven Cookies

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 12 mins

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!"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter until fluffy.
  2. Add the sugars slowly and beat well.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  4. On a sheet of waxed paper thoroughly combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
  5. Add to the butter mix, stirring just until blended.
  6. Stir in toffee bits, coconut, chips, and pecans.
  7. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  8. Bake 10-12 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly brown around the edges.
  9. 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:-)
