For my deliciously diabolical plan, I started with Coconut and Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are ridiculously quick to make, super buttery, and can be made with the contents of your (moderately well-stocked)pantry. They nearly make themselves!
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then mix in the coconut and chocolate chips. Drop dough by tablespoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly toasted. Cool on wire racks, and serve with milk!
I literally took ONE bite of these cookies (to make sure they were as yummy as they smelled. They were!!) and knew I would inhale the entire batch if I didn't immediately pack them up for my husband's lunch. Yes, a dozen coconut cookies in his lunch. "Gee Megan, are you losing weight? You look so slender." Muhahah!!
If you take issue with my plan to fatten up everyone around me, feel free to come on over to my house, and discuss it over cookies. I'll be eating celery sticks, but I'm making up a new batch of cookies right now- just for you!
