Coconut Pecan Cookies

Several weeks ago I shared these pudding cookies, which I first saw over at Chef in Training.  You know I love to make different versions and variations of the same recipe, so today I’ve got Coconut Pecan version to share with you!

Recipe for Coconut Pecan Cookies:


1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup) 
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1/4 cup sugar1

 2 eggs 
1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup pecans
1 cup shredded coconut

Add eggs and coconut flavoring. Add flour mixture slowly until well incorporated. Add chocolate chips or other add-in.Roll into 1 inch balls and place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for 8-12 minutes.

    I love these cookies! What I really like is the various coconut flavorings for those that don't like the shredded kind. I'll make these without the shredded coconut bc my hubby and I really don't eat it. Thx for the recipe!
