Cocky Chocolate Chip Cookies...


These cookies got their "Cocky" name because they are really that delicious- even they know it! I also need to clarify, these are not healthy and nutritious, they are down right scrumptous! The original recipe is from this William Sonoma cookie cook book with a few tweaks!

Ingredients:
1 1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 c chocolate chips
**2/3 c shredded coconut (optional, not so much for flavor, but for chewiness!)

Directions:
 Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt) in a bowl. In a second bowl, beat the butter on high until it is light and fluffy (don't skip this step, it's what makes the cookies so cocky!). Then add both sugars, egg, and vanilla to the fluffy butter. Beat again with hand mixer. Add the dry mixture to the bowl slowly and continue to beat until it is all mixed together.  Last, add the chocolate chips and coconut. Hand mix one last time. Scoop 1 inch balls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Take cookies off sheet and let cool on a wire rack.  Serve with a class of milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
