SooOoOoo, the night before Easter I made some of these cookies using the excuse that my Father-in-law got a new knee and he LOVES coconut. He will surely love to have these… *coughmecoughtoo*
Then I thought, hmmm, chocolate. I love chocolate in macaroons.
Toasted coconut PLUS milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips = HEAVEN.
I then proceeded to eat
one, I mean two, no…okay, three… forget it, I’m pleading the fifth! SO DAMN GOOD. Especially with my morning coffee.
Then I got all crazy after making the macaroons, and thought I should make some soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies next for my brother-in-law because he just fell and cracked a hip (swear to God, I’m not making this up!), and I also wanted to try this soft and chewy chocolate cookie recipe from the Cookies recipe book I picked up last year by Martha Stewart. It’s addicting.
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip
To be honest, I have the worst luck making chocolate chip cookies and I don’t know why! These soft and chewy ones came out just that though, soft and chewy, and perfect. Finally! I will try her Cakey Chocolate Chip cookie recipe next for comparison.
Both recipes are from Martha Stewart’s Cookies recipe book.
I absolutely recommend this book! The Maple-Pecan Shortbread and Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies were delicious.
