Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

"I especially love this cookie because it is essentially coconut, chocolate chips and nuts held together with the minimum amount of dough. Prep time includes chill time."

  1. These cookies are wonderful! Had some chocolate chips leftover from Christmas that I wanted to use up so decided to make cookies. I am sure glad I picked your recipe. My husband, sons and brother-in-law all gave these cookies two thumbs up!!
  2. These were really, really good. The first batch I cooked spread too much and I knew I had done something wrong. I think it was because I put the butter in the microwave to softened and I left it in too long. I added more flour and they were perfect. I halfed the recipe and somehow I think I made a mistake in my proportions They still turned out good.
  3. Absolutely awesome cookies! I loved the combination of chocolate and coconut. They were so moist and delicious.Very easy to prepare! Intend on making a second batch in a little bit. Thank you for such a great recipe! :D
  4. My family thought I was crazy when I said coconut was in the cookies! But when they tried them, I can't get them to stop eating them.
  5. OH MY! These are really good! I worried the coconut would be too prominent, but everything blends together well, for the perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie! I only had chunk chocolate chips and pecans, but it still turned out great. I'll never make any other!


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
