I had one of these cookies at Paradise Bakery, and when I got home I started working on my own version!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Funny story... when making the dough it was dry and a lot of coconut. We thought this may be a cookie fail. Oh boy, were we pleasantly surprised once we took a bite of these coconut chocolate chip cookies. The outside tastes like toasted coconut and the edges even get a little crisp. Inside, though, is nice and gooey. These cookies don't spread much, so place the cookie how you want it to bake. This cookie is a coconut lovers dream!
