    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    I've made this recipe from Ladies Home Journal for the past 15 years. My original copy is half burned (a little problem toasting the coconut) so I thought I better get this published. The cookie dough is so delicious; tastes like a candy bar. The toasted coconut takes it to new heights!

    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 350°.
    4. 4
      In large bowl or mixer, on low speed, mix all ingredients (except chocolate chips) together (with the shortening being soft, it mixes easily and does not have to be creamed first).

    6. 6
      Drop level 1/4 cups dough, about 2-inches apart, on ungreased cookie sheet, pressing dough lightly to form rounds.

    8. 8
      Let cool a couple of minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling rack to finish cooling.

      I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. My cookies did not come out crispy, but soft and chewy. I only used a couple drops of coconut extract because that is all that was left in the bottle, but because it is very strong, they still had a lot of coconut flavor.

      Wow! Over the top delicious!! I doubled the recipe as I needed a bigger batch for company. I also toasted the coconut in the oven...worked great. Instead of chocolate chips, I used Hershey milk chocolate bars, chopped. I really think that the toasted coconut added that extra punch of flavor! Thanks!

      I replaced the shortening with margarine and decreased the chocolate chips to 1.5 cups as suggested by other reviewers. These cookies were so yummy and so easy! I did expect there to be more coconut taste especially with the coconut extract, but they were still very tasty! I think next time I may try adding toasted almond slivers as well. Taking these to my in-laws later today. I hope they like them as much as we did!
