Dreamy Island Cookies

If you love coconut and chocolate, you will absolutely love this Christmas cookie recipe.  This is a new cookie and I must say I love the combination of coconut, chocolate and pecans.  I made a slight change to the original recipe because the dough was not binding so I added a little orange juice and voila it came together perfectly.  The OJ added a nice flavor.

1⅔ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
1½ sticks unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup packed brown sugar
⅓ cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1-2 tablespoons orange juice
1¾ cups milk chocolate chips
¾ cup flaked sweetened coconut
¾ cup chopped pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt in small bowl.

  3. Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Beat in egg.

  4. Gradually stir in flour mixture until well combined; add a little orange juice to bind dough.

  5. Stir in chocolate, coconut and pecans. Drop by large tablespoons onto baking sheets.

  6. Bake 10 minutes for a chewy cookie.

Yields 4 dozen cookie
