These cookies were a last minute addition to a cookie basket I was making. I have always been a big fan of baked goods as presents, or friendly gestures. You are giving a gift you know someone can enjoy, and they know you put time and effort into making their gift.
As for the actual baking, I am a strong believer in the traditional Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. Simply add 1 cup of finely shredded coconut to their recipe. Just be sure that your coconut flakes are nice and moist, you don't want to dry out your cookies!
