Coconut Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies


Hey y'all.  I just have to tell you that these cookies are so, so yummy!  Definitely one of my all time favorite cookie recipes.  Someone always asks for the recipe when we bring these cookies to parties and such.  They are delish! 

Ingredients:
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
8 ounces of chocolate chips
1 ½ cups sweetened flaked coconut
3 ½ ounces macadamia nuts, chopped coarsely (about ¾ cup)

Directions:
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease two 17x14-inch cookie sheets. In mixer, beat butter, sugars, egg, salt, and vanilla at medium speed until fluffy. Reduce mix to low speed, add flour, increase mixer speed gradually and beat just until blended. Stir in chocolate, coconut, and nuts. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on cookie sheets. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 17 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly browned and tops look dry. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes. Remove to completely cool. Makes 26 cookies.
