coconut chocolate chip cookies

my oldest sister sent these to me raving about them. i have been excited to try them but i haven't had a chance. this weekend, one of my besties (the ever talented rachel thurston of rachel thurston photography) was in town, and we were gonna have a bonfire weenie roast, but with all the torrential downpours we've been having, we got rained out. so i decided to make some cookies to help make up for it and these were the perfect pinch hitters! we all love coconut and chocolate and cookies so it only made sense to make these, cause they are LOADED with coconut.

1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
-beat butter for about a minute, then add one type of sugar at a time, beating a minute or two each, then beat all for 2 to 3 minutes until light and fluffy.

2 eggs (beating in one at a time)
2 t. vanilla

2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt

2 2/3 c. coconut
1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. milk chocolate chips

bake at 350° for 14 minutes, roatating the tray after 10 minutes.

Wow Caroline! Visiting your blog late at night on an empty stomach might not be the best idea! I have a sudden urge to go bake several dozen chocolate chip cookies! Terrific recipes and wonderful photos!
You and your mom are "two peas in a pod" (or Two chocolate chips in a bag!).
I'll be checking regularly!
Best Wishes, Vicki Jones
