I shared the recipe for these Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies over at I’m Topsy Turvy a few weeks ago. Ashlee is one of my blogging BFF’s. She’s talented, creative, cute, and just plain fun to be around. Since I’m hangin’ out with her today (hopefully!), I thought this was the perfect day to share this recipe.
We love coconut at our house, so these coconut chocolate chip cookies were a huge hit. The coconut extract adds great flavor, so don’t leave it out. Next time I might try toasting the coconut first. Because I love coconut, but I’m crazy about toasted coconut. So dang yummy! Hope you like ’em. 🙂
