Choco-Coco-Nut Cookies

So I know this is pumpkin season and I should be following the trend and by posting a pumpkin recipe..but you know what? I’m kind of sick of pumpkin honestly.I know it’s a crime. But just look at these cookies.

Anyways, while I was home over the weekend I decided to make some cookies…but not just SOME cookies, cookies filled with chocolate chips, toasted walnuts, and toasted coconut!!

Chocolate chip cookies were the first thing I ever made, and the first recipe I ever memorized. I baked the standard toll house chocolate chip cookie recipe so many times, that it was engrained in my brain. I would always make a batch of cookies, eat a lot of the batter (surprisingly never got salmonella), and then give all the cookies away to my neighbors

Yup I was a pretty good neighbor.

I ended up bringing these cookies over to my friends house, but she was kind enough to share one a few with me. Toll House cookies might be a little underrated now-a-days, but I mean, their recipe does make an awesome cookie. Sometimes classic, old-fashioned goodness, is the way to go:)

    These look so good that I will forgive you for being sick of pumpkin 🙂 I’m normally not a huge coconut fan but you could put anything in a chocolate chip cookie and I would eat it!
