My hubby has been bugging me for days to make some cookies. I checked my saved recipes in my cookbooks and decided to try yours. Glad I did. I used the shortening worked well, sub. the brown sugar and made it 1 cup white sugar. Wanted to make a lighter colored cookie. Made 36 cookies using a #30 cookie scoop. By the way DH loved the cookies.
These tasted good but I would not use shortening next time.I would use margarine.The shortening makes the cookie too crispy and flaky.Good overall taste though.
DELICIOUS!!!! I didn't use the coconut extract so I couldn't taste very much coconut. Other than that YUM! Goes great with milk!
Leave it to Roxygirl to show us how to make the perfect coconut chocolate chip cookie. These baked up big and beautiful. Right up my husband's alley...and everyone else who tastes them. No changes made--thanks, Roxy!
GORGEOUS cookies! Never had cocnut choco-chip cookies before and we LOVE coconut, so this has become our absolute favourite! I didn't have coconut extract so skipped that out, and added just 1 cup of choco-chips. DD was happily munching on them too! Thank you, Roxygirl, for sharing another one of your wonderful recipes!
These were delicious. I couldn't stop eating them. I think two cups of chocolate chips is too much. After forming the cookies I had about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips left in the bottom of the bowl. I think I'll use 1 cup of chocolate chips next time.
Awesome, one of my very favourite cookies! The toasted coconut and oats make these cookies divine! I used butter as well and made smaller cookies. These are truly divine, such a treat! Thank you!
These cookies are outstanding! The only change I made was I used half butter and half shortening. I like the flavor and texture of butter in cookies. Definitely make sure to take the time to toast the coconut. It really elevates the flavor. Thanks for a great recipe!
amazing - I toasted the coconut in the oven and it works just the same but you have to watch it closely because it burns fast. I doubled the batch, used have butter and added a few peanut butter chips to the very last batch in the oven. These were so delicious and even people that don't like coconut loved them!
Wonderful cookies! I loved the toasted coconut! Only changes I made were to sub butter for shortening and to make regular-sized cookies which baked for 11 minutes. Even the kids and their friend, none of whom like coconut, really enjoyed these. Crispy, lots of texture with the oatmeal and coconut and lots of chocolate chips. Delicious! Thanks, Roxygirl, for posting!
