Bonnie Latham

2 cups, plus 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

12 Tbsp. nsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

1 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 whole egg plus one egg yolk

2 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup flaked sweetened / colored coconut

1 cup almond slivers


Preheat oven to 325. In a medium-size bowl sift together the flour, salt and baking soda.

In a large bowl, blend the butter and sugars until creamy. Ad the egg, yolk and vanilla.

Add the flour mixture to the large bowl and stir to combine. Then mix in chips, colored coconut, and almond slivers.

Grease a cookie sheet. Place dough by spoonfuls 3 inches apart.

Bake about 14 minutes, until cookies are lightly golden. The edges will harden but centers will be puffy. Cool on a rack for 20 minutes.
