Coconut Macadamia Chocolate Chip Cookies
Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies loaded with sweet coconut, chocolate chips & chopped macadamia nuts! Over the top chocolate chip cookie recipe with fantastic flavor, buttery crisp edges and a soft & chewy center.
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour or bread flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 whole egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut (toasted or plain)
- 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, loosely chopped (you want nice, big chunks)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Using an electric mixer, blend the sugars and butter until creamy and smooth.
Add in eggs, vanilla, and milk; mix to combine on medium speed until smooth. Slowly add in flour, salt and soda; mix until well combined.
On low speed, stir in chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts.
Using a 2" cookie scoop, spoon dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets, 6 cookies per sheet. Stick tray in the freezer for 10 minutes. After dough has chilled, bake cookies for about 15 minutes, checking the cookies after 10 minutes and rotating the tray to ensure even browning.
If you opt to make the 1" cookies, chill about 5 minutes and then bake for about 10 minutes.
Note: Because of the amount of butter in them, these cookies turn out a tad bit darker than most other cookies. It's okay. Mrs. Fields' turned out the same way. I promise you didn't over bake them.
Yields 12-18 cookies, depending on if you use a medium or large cookie scoop!
