My daughter and her boyfriend often surprise me with coconut chocolate chip cookies from Paradise Bakery…of which my daughter also is quite fond of.   Last night I decided to surprise her and see if I could come up with something close.  Taking a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and considering the moisture in the coconut I came up with what we both thought was “it”…the only quest next time would be to make them bigger so they would be thicker when done.  I made this batch with large rounded teaspoon fulls of dough and next time will make large round tablespoons of dough which should create the thicker cookie that they offer.  Let me know if you try these and what you think!  Look for the recipe in the Sweet Tooth section. Oh, and please help me get the recipe database going…I have hundreds of recipes I want to add I just haven’t gotten that far yet so check back often!
