Chocolate Chip Cookies - a GrEaT nEw TwiSt on an Old Recipe!

Who DOESN'T love Chocolate Chip Cookies?!?!?  Last week I made up a batch to use up some extra of my hens' good eggs. 
This Recipe is a KEEPER at our house
Hubby tends to be kind of persnickety when it comes to trying different baked goods or meals that he has never had before, so I was unsure of how it would go over.  When I walked into the kitchen the next morning, the plate was EMPTY - a sure sign that the recipe could be used again!  Maybe you'd like to bake some up to try - here's the recipe - give it a whirl!

Chocolate Chippers with a TWIST
Preheat oven to 375.
  • In medium bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp baking soda, mixing well.
  • In a large bowl, combine 1 cup butter, softened a bit, 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and mix till light and fluffy.  Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir till just combined.  Stir in 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats (not instant oats), 1/2 cup coconut shreds, 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips, and 1 cup of peanut butter chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon about 2 inches apart on baking sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes.  (I baked for 12 minutes because I wanted the cookies a little more crispy, for dunking in milk).
If there's ever any baked goods that the hubbs doesn't particularly care for, I have no problems with what to do with left overs!!!

They look yummy! I've had them with oats but I haven't had them with the peanut butter chips and the coconut added to them. That is an interesting twist! I'll have to give that a try.

You need to re-name this recipe to "Everything but the kitchen sink" cookies!
They sound delish to me.
If you find something that the men like....gotta keep on making it, right?
