Serves: 3 dozen
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2½ cups white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, white and brown sugar. Beat on medium speed with a mixer for one minute until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Mix for one more minute. Scrap sides of the bowl and mix for a few more seconds to insure all wet ingredients are combined.
  4. Add flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to the wet ingredients. These can be combined ahead of time in a separate bowl and sifted if you like. I usually just dump them all in and mix them a little with a spoon before mixing.
  5. On low speed mix the dough until just combined. You can finish mixing with a wooden spoon or spatula to ensure all ingredients are combined.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips, coconut and pecans. Make sure to get down to the bottom of the bowl when stirring to make sure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  7. Drop onto prepared baking sheets with a medium scoop and place about 1 inch apart. On a half sheet baking pan, I usually place them 4 across and 3 down.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Let cool for about 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack. Repeat with the remainder of the dough. Store cooled cookies in an airtight container.
