It has been rainy and grey around here for the past two weeks. I think the entire county has gotten the blues. Even our new and very fragile herb garden has taken a hit with all the water and no sun.
So we had to resort to baking some yummy chocolate chip cookies to lift our spirits. I have tried many recipes, but we love this one the best. Here we go:
2 cups regular flour
2 sticks of butter (around 250 gr)
1 cup sugar (I use 1/2 cup of the baking brown moist sugar and 1/2 cup of regular dark brown sugar; if not available, then just regular brown sugar is fine too)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or 1 bar of dark chocolate broken into small pieces)
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbs vanila essence
1 pinch of salt
Mix flour, baking soda and salt in one bowl. Mix eggs, sugar and melted (but not hot) butter in another bowl. Add dry ingredients to the wet ones. Add chocolate chips, coconut and vanilla. Mix well (I use spatula).
Once the dough is ready, use tablespoon to scoop out golf ball size dough and press it gently in a non-greased shallow cookie sheet. Make sure you space the dough to prevent sticking. Once the dough is ready, add a pinch of salt on the top of each cookie dough. Bake for 11 minutes at 350F (180C). Take out of the oven and let cool. Enjoy!
