Fresh Island Cookies

I'm trying some new recipes out, this being one of them, to take to the Ronald McDonald House tomorrow. I thought these just sounded fabulous! I gotta say, my house smells delicious!

From "The Cookie Bible", mostly.

1 2/3 c
3/4 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
3/4 c
butter, softened
3/4 c
brown sugar
1/3 c
1 tsp
large egg
1 3/4 c
milk chocolate morsels (11.5 oz pkg)
1 c
flaked coconut, toasted if desired
1 c
chopped nuts (i used pecans)


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda in a small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla in mixer until creamy. Add egg and beat well. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
2Stir in morsels, coconut and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
3Bake for 8 to 11 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
4Note: I used a combination of 1 cup milk chocolate and 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate; you can also use other flavored morsels if you prefer (i.e. white chocolate or butterscotch, for instance).
