We decided to make cookies out of the ingredients we had in our kitchen. This recipe is for one amazing flavor we made, but we actually made another variety too and will discuss that below.

1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 stick of butter (6 tbsp.)
1/2 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 c. sweetened shredded coconut
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. pecans

In one bowl, combine softened butter, white and brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Pour the liquid ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix well. Add in the coconut, chocolate chips, and pecans. Distribute on baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes at 375, or until they begin to brown on top. Makes about 2 dozen.

The second variety we made used the same base, but then we added 1 c. of oats, 1/2 c. of walnuts, and 1/2 c. of M&Ms. These ones were delectable as well!
