1 c. melted butter
3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. coconut extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 beaten eggs
1 c. finely chopped coconut flakes (from approx. 2 cup)
2 1/4 c. flour
1 c. chocolate chips (6 oz. pkg)

Melt butter. Mix in sugars. Add baking soda, extract and salt. Add eggs and stir together. Chop coconut, measuring after chopping. Pack down when measuring, add to sugar/egg mixture and stir thoroughly. Add half the flour and chips and stir well. Finish by mixing in rest of the flour. Let dough “rest” for 10 minutes, uncovered. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets, 12 cookies to a baking sheet. If dough is too sticky to handle, chill slightly and try again. Bake at 350° for nine – 11 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Let cool for three minutes, then remove cookies from pan and transfer to wire rack for cooling. Makes about six dozen depending on cookie size.
