I baked these a while ago and forgot to post. So here they are a little late. I used the original Toll House recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag and then added a ton of shredded coconut to add chewiness and a little crunch. My mom and I both love crunchy cookies. I like soft too but there's something really satisfying about taking a bit out of something and hearing it crunch! I love these particular cookies right out of the freezer too! Yum!
So here's the ingredients:
Here's the cookie dough all balled up via a melon baller. The regular recipe made 84 small cookies! That way you can eat 3 and not feel totally guilty! Only 2.5 grams of fat per cookie (not including the healthy fat from the walnuts. Never count healthy fat!
The final resting place in the cookie jar (which I bought at Wal-Mart over the holidays). I think it was under $5! I love it because it has an old fashioned feel to it - don't you think?
My mom used to make this all the time! I love soup in Winter and seriously make a pot every week while it's cold here in Arizona!
This one is easy and seems to do well if you add extras to it like today I had some celery, mini peppers and broccoli that normally doesn't go in it : )The flavor is heavenly!
As a child you could find me on my head more than on my feet so says my mom. A twirler of batons & dare devil gymnast that was me. An abundance of energy + a big back yard = a perfect match!
You could also find me in the kitchen cooking and baking with my mom. I know she probably wouldn't want me to blab this to the world but back in the 70's she took cooking lessons from Julia Child and belonged to 2 gourmet cooking clubs so you can only imagine how many different things I tasted growing up!
I am constantly inspired by the world around me and all of the wonderful talented people I find in "real life" and online that I seem to have a very long bucket list that so far only has a few drops at the bottom! May it never be filled to the top...
