Island Cookies

It is cold and wet and wintery here so perfect day for cookies and pajamas!  These are from “The Cookie Bible”.

1 2/3 cups flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1 3/4 cups (11.5 oz package) milk chocolate, semi sweet, white, butterscotch or miniature chocolate morsels or combination of any (I used half milk chocolate and half butterscotch)

1 cup flaked coconut, toasted if desired

1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375.  Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in small bowl.  Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl until creamy.  Beat in egg.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels, coconut and nuts.  Drop by slightly rounded tablespoons onto greased baking sheets.  Bake for 8 – 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.   Makes about 3 dozen.
