Isn't this better?
I used my trusty Alton Brown chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe.
1/2 C shredded coconut
1/2 C chopped pecans
and I remembered the baking soda
These taste great. The cookies are nice and crisp at the edges, and soft chewy in the center. I have tried other choc chip cookie recipes, and always come back to this one. The coconut adds a nice sweetness and texture, and the pecans are delightful. Neither of the additions overpower the chocolate chip cookie flavor.
BTW...Remember the post about my love of coffee mugs? Well, thats one of my faves in the picture. I didn't buy it, it was in a set that belonged to my mom. It's reserved for special occasions, mostly days that I need cheered up. It made a special appearance for the photo.
