How to Make Fresh Island Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 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.
