Baked goods: Coconut macadamia cookies


Tanjoobi omedetoo……..

Yeah, so a work birthday rolled around again, and since I was staying at a friend’s apartment, I had none of my normal baking goods. Improvisation is fine but far from ideal, much like driving automatic transmission vehicles or drinking crappy coffee — they get the job done, but it’s just not what’s in your heart.

I made a cake (will show the disastrous results in another post) and these cookies. Both were a first for me. Kind of dangerous to fete someone with experimental baked goods, but what the hell? No one ever conquered the world or a taste bud by playing it safe.

Now that I am posting this, though, I can’t find the recipe. Haha. Same for the ugly cake. Will post it once I find it again.

UPDATE! I found the recipe. I had already forgotten how simple it was:

Coconut-Macadamia Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup flaked coconut
3 1/2 ounces or so of macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 375F. Mix butter, sugars and egg. Stir in flour and baking soda, dough will be very stiff. Stir in coconut and nuts. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I rolled into balls, then flattened). Bake until light brown, 8 – 10 minutes (centers will be soft). Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet and cool completely.
