Normal motorists faced a slippery ride. I faced far more than that.
Because I like to celebrate the small things in life, I say these cookies should serve as quite a reward for making it out of my car alive and for not injuring anyone in my path.
These cookies have a lot of personality and are not for the meek, cowardly souls out there. Be ye adventurous! There's toasted pecans and coconut, white chocolate and semisweet chocolate and butter. Lots of butter... Be warned, these might be the best cookies you've ever put in your mouth.
Boca Fiesta Cookies
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
½ cup shredded coconut
2½ sticks of butter
1-1/4 cups light brown sugar (dark is fine, too)
¾ cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2¾ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like Ghiradelli)
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter and both sugars. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed, add eggs and vanilla, and beat until well blended.
Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Stir in the chips, coconut and pecans.
Drop tablespoon size portions of dough on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
