Before we begin, let me say when I started this recipe I wasn’t planning on sharing. So please don’t mind how ugly my cookies are. They taste heavenly.
When I share a baking recipe it is my adjustment on someone else’s recipe. This one is completely mine. I came up with the measurements, and I am so excited to share! We had shredded coconut from Christmas baking, and candy from stockings that I wanted to use up. Cookies are relatively forgiving so I decided to whip some up. I am thinking of these as a kind of monster cookies.
-2 cups flour -1 1/4 cup brown sugar -1 teaspoon baking powder -1/4 teaspoon salt -2 eggs -1 and a half sticks of butter (softened) -1 tablespoon vanilla extract -2 cups of chopped candy/chocolate chips/coconut/etc!
1. Preheat oven to 400*.
2. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in eggs.
3. Chop candy as needed, add in to mix. Add remaining ingredients.
4. Form into balls, place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 400*.
My cookies included chopped candies and coconut. This recipe would work with just chocolate chips or with peanut butter added to the dough. They are really easy to tweak to fit your taste!
