coconut chocolate chip cookies

with school starting up again i've been experimenting with new cookie recipes. my five-year-old always loves coming home to a homemade snack and sometimes the old favorites just need a little facelift! these cookies are delicious!


1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar {packed}
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp hot water
3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut

1. preheat oven to 350.
2. cream together butter, white sugar & brown sugar until smooth.
3. beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla and coconut extract.
4. dissolve baking soda and salt in hot water and add to dough. mix thoroughly.
5. stir in flour.
6. add coconut and chocolate chips.

spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until edges are golden.

enjoy with a cold glass of milk!

I adore coconut and am drooling at these; sadly, about half of my family hate coconut so I don't get to bake with it as much as I would like. Chocolate and coconut is an awesome combo!

I love coconut and chocolate together. I wonder if I can just use coconut butter instead of coconut extract?
