Best Cookie Ever & An Award!

Well, second best. First would be the good ol' chocolate chip cookie. This comes in second. My Mom found this recipe on the back of the Nestle white chocolate chip bag, and they were "so" good. Cookies are one of my favorite things to bake, they are so easy and who doesn't like a good cookie?? Next time I am bringing a dessert somewhere, these are on the list. I gurantee you will love them.

"White Chip Island Cookies"

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 cup (1 -1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 large egg

2 cups white chips

1 cup flaked coconut

3/4 cup macadamia or walnuts, chopped (I used macadamia nuts)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, baking poweder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels, coconut, and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Now for the award. Jenny over at Picky Palate gave me the smile award. I was quite surprised, I love getting awards! I won't be passing this on to anyone but thanks again Jenny!

Yup, me. And no. I don't really eat "baseballs"!

My postings will be getting less frequent as I am getting ready for a 10 day trip to California next week. But until then, I'll be back with more goodies.
