- Brown Sugar
- Granualted Sugar
- Shredded Coconut
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Vanilla Extract
You’ll need some unsalted butter in a little bit of vegetable shortening both have been softened at room temperature all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, plain old regular granulated sugar, shredded coconut, semi-sweet chocolate chips, an egg and vanilla extract that is it my friend the ingredients are really simple now basically this is like my classic chocolate chip cookie recipe that.So, I figured combine the two and they love these so much this will be my fourth time making them so that tells you something they’re pretty darn good now the first thing you want to do is get your oven preheated to 375 get a couple of baking sheets with some parchment paper ready in handy because these are going to go so fast within 20 minutes from here till about 20 minutes um now they’ll be done so I’m going to make these in my standing mixer just because it’s easy will being a little bit lazy.
Today, I’m going to put in my butter and shortening now if, you don’t have vegetable shortening just substitute it with a little bit more butter the equivalent of the shortening you would use butter I like the shortening it gives you a little bit more of a delicate texture on the cookie I always use it people love it if it ain’t broke why fix it you know what I mean so now to the butter and shortening.I’m going to add both kinds of sugar and I’m going to cream this together pretty well until they’re all really nice and combined that looks good enough as always you want to take a spatula just run it along the sides because you want that all to get mixed all right now I’m going to add in one egg ,some vanilla extract now if, you want this this cookie to be like really coconutty forget the vanilla extract substitute just a little bit of 1/4 teaspoon of coconut extract that will really bring out the flavor of the coconut.
Coconut quite a bit like you really like that strong taste do do try it cuz.I think that’s you know you only want to know whether you like it or not just going to mix this together and then in the meantime.I’m just going to take my dry ingredients which is just my flour salt baking powder baking soda yeah that’s just a quick little mix and now because this is a cookie not a muffin or a cake or anything like that.I don’t need to toss my flour with the chocolate chip cookies because it’s just gonna bake evenly it’s not like it’s a cake batter where the chocolate chips are going to sink all the way to the bottom.
So, I’m eliminating that step and just gonna wait for this to get combined a little bit more and we’ll be ready to add in our dry mixture that looks great let’s add in our dry mixture.I’m just gonna mix this just enough until they’re all combined good enough for me all right let’s add in the coconut and the top of chips now have a quick question this is gonna sound really awkward but is it just me or does coconut remind you like summer and tropics and beach weather and all things fabulous.I don’t know why any time I eat anything with coconut in it that’s what I think of I think right now.I’m just craving spring and summer so,badly that I’m finding any excuse to feel like it’s right around the corner even if I just have to bake with coconut.
I’m saying full-time pumpkin cinnamon all those warm spices summertime fruits vegetables the grill. I love fighting up that grill and getting it ready for some good steaks and chicken and veggies and oh so,let me know what you’re most looking forward to because if,it has anything to do with food.I want to make it so ok enough chit chatting getting this dough off for this hook.I want to get as much of it as possible off of there you don’t want to waste a thing yeah it’s looking good all right now you know the trick handy-dandy ice cream scoop a 1 this is a 1 tablespoon measuring ice cream scoop so if,you don’t have an ice cream scoop just take two spoons make little balls put them on your baking sheet good to go same thing this just makes my life a lot easier take little mounds of it plop it right on allow a couple inches apart from each other because these will spread out and they bake and then just keep on rolling let’s do one more now there’s this dough mix you know more cookies .
I make cookies I always have extra batter that I save I plop it all on a ziploc bag stick in the freezer then.I take the whole thing when I’m ready to bake them in the microwave for 30 seconds cause it perfectly plump it on the baking sheet in the oven homemade fresh cookies for any time someone stops by and I tell you if your friends love you now wait until you see how much they love you when they show up I noticed without announced and you can get homemade cookies on the table in about 15 minutes that’s pretty impressive all right these are going to go into your preheated oven at 375 about nine to eleven minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown let them cool completely but rotate the baking sheets halfway through for even baking I’m gonna show you what they look like when they’re done my cook these four in the oven for 11 minutes and I just rotated the cooking sheets with baking sheets halfway through and they’re exactly how they should be I let these cool for a bit now don’t think that that little tiny bit of shortening may be super crunchy because what these are are perfectly chewy and delicious it’s .
