The coconut and nut combination give these Island Cookies a tropical flavor! Great for picnics and entertaining, too.

Review This Recipe
These were a wonderful twist on a regular chocolate chip cookie. Even my son who kept saying he didn't like coconut couldn't stop eating them. The 1st batch I made I used the toasted coconut but you really couldn't taste the coconut so I added 1/2 cup of untoasted coconut and it tasted so much better. My son says these are now his favorite cookies.
