Chocolatechip cookies with coconut flakes

These cookies are ordinary chocolate chip cookies with added coconut flakes.

Ingredients

It is a fairly big batch, It makes about 6 trays with 9 cookies each.

Old picture just to illustrate

3 cups room-temperature regular salted butter

2 cups granulated sugar

2 cups brown sugar

3 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

4 cups all-purpose flour

6 cups oatmeal(blend after measuring)

2 tsp baking soda

When I make a big batch like this I usually divide it in three and make three different type og cookies. For each third of the batch I use 12 oz pack of semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels

Start by mixing the butter and sugar to a creamy consistency

Add in the eggs one by one.

add the vanilla extract

At the end ad flor, oatmeal and baking soda, mix untill everything is incorporated, but do not over mix.

As I mentioned earlier I add 12 oz of chocolate chips to a third of the batch and for the cookies on top I also added 1 cup of coconut flakes.

Make your own mixes, different colored chocolate, nuts and berries, there are so many possibilities, your imagination is the limit.

Place the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes before you bake the it

Divide your dough into 18 equal parts and place them on a lined baking tray and bake them in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes on 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

When they are done, pull the baking liner off the tray with the cookies on onto a cool tray.

A long baking time on a lower heat and quick cooling of the cookies gives you cookies thar are crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle.

Good luck and enjoy
