How to make the best coconut chocolate chip cookies

Here’s a little PRO TIP  to really enhance the flavor of your cookies. Coursely chop your macadamia nuts and lightly toast your nuts and coconut together. Let cool while you start combining your other ingredients.

In your mixer cream your sugars and butter.

Then add in your eggs.

After you’ve mixed all your other ingredients (flour, vanilla.. secret ingredient.. COCONUT EXTRACT).

Bake until the cookies are just a light brown. For a crispier cookie let it cook until it is a golden brown. Remove cookies over to a cooling rack to keep them from cooking.
