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

a great twist on an old favorite!


Island Cookies

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.

these cookies were excellent.I went with the premier white chip morsels, toasted the coconut and used crushed walnuts, also toasted. Perfect combination.

Best cookies ever

These cookies are so scrumptious! I don't think my family can leave a cookie on the plate when I bake them. They have the perfect cookie consistency. A must try!
