Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies a few weeks ago, just because I was in the mood for cookies and I didn’t have any in the house. Can you think of a better reason to bake? I can’t.

I followed the recipe on the bag of mini chips for Original Nestlé Toll House Mini Morsel Cookies, with a few changes. I used 2 Earth Balance Buttery Sticks (1 cup) instead of butter, eliminated the brown sugar (I was out), used 1 cup of white sugar, added 1 cup of coconut (and now I finally finished my bag!), and increased the flour by 1/4 cup (I used white whole wheat flour instead of AP).

These use-what-you-have cookies baked up nice and high, with just the right combination of crispy edge and soft, chewy center. J. loved them, even with the coconut, and the boys did too. They satisfied my cookie craving and used up a bunch of infrequently-used ingredients — perfect.
