Dusting Off The Old Mrs Fields Cookie Book

It's been a while since I've flipped through the Mrs Fields Cookie Book that Greg's mom gave me. I remember how excited I was when I first got it and marked all these yummy recipes to try! I turned to it for some inspiration tonight and decided to make Cocomia Cookies. These cookies are full of Coconut and Macadamia Nuts and just perfect for summer!

Ingredients: (3 dozen cookies)

2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
3/4 c unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c shredded sweetened coconut
1-1/2 c macadamia nuts


1. Preheat oven to 300°F.

2. In a bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, blend sugars and butter at medium speed to form a grainy paste. Scrape down sides, then add eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

4. Add the flour mixture, coconut and nuts, and blend at low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.

5. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 22-24 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies with spatula to a cool flat surface.
