Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in the mood for some chocolate chip cookies.  It’s nothing unusual for me because I love chocolate chip cookies.  I was looking at some of the variations that Greenspan suggested for chocolate chip cookies and was intrigued by a coconut variation.  I’d never think of throwing in coconut, but when I saw it, I knew I had to try it!

I only had half of the amount suggested, because it was leftover from something else I made with coconut.  There was a hint of coconut, and I imagine the coconut flavor would be a lot stronger if you used more.  They were really good, despite not having enough coconut in it.

  •  2 cups All-Purpose Flour

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
