8 Minutes - Day 29

Today I’m thankful for the 8 minutes that it takes to bake a Coconut chocolate cookies.

My dear friend Janette makes these incredible chocolate cookies. And after eating the serveral times at our coffee dates I decided to try them on my own. And then inspiration hit. I wondered what they would be like if I added some coconut extract along with the coconut in the cookies. I have a few members of my family that cannot say no to coconut! Goodness was I right. I even got the stamp of approval from Janette.

So I needed a pick me up this afternoon and decided that I would throw a batch in the oven between blogging and getting more food ready for the freezer for Grayson. 

Don’t they look devine!!

Here’s the recipe for those who are interested. 

1 cup butter

¾ cup white sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp coconut extract

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 ¼ cup flour

1 cup coconut

1 1/3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Blend together and drop onto cookie sheet. Put in 325 degree oven for 8 minutes.


Also – I fixed the video on last night’s Vlog – sorry that it didn’t work properly at first.
