Treasure Island Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

A nice twist of a chocolate chip cookie with macadamia nuts and shredded coconut. Found in a Toll House cookie booklet published in 1990 (one I've been using for years and finally adding to this site.)

Treasure Island means tropical to me, & that's what drew me to this recipe! Then, for the chocoholic in me to find the cookies include chocolate AS WELL AS a great combo of coconut & macadamia nuts, well that's just great, as were these cookies ~ Absolutely wonderful in taste & satisfaction! Thanks for sharing the recipe! It's a keeper, for sure! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
