How to Make Fresh Island Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat 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.
  2. Stir in morsels, coconut and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Note: 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).
