These chocolate chip cookies were made by my 10-year-old daughter Poppy. The recipe is pretty fail safe, in fact she's made these repeatedly over the last year and they've always turned out great. They keep well in an airtight container.
125g butter softened
1tsp vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup shredded or dessicated coconut
1/2 cups small chocolate buttons
Preheat oven to 180C. Line cookie trays with baking paper. In the bowl of your cake mixer beat butter, vanilla and sugar until creamy. Add egg and beat until well combined. Stir in by hand the flours, coconut and chocolate.
Place golf ball sized pieces of batter on your cookie tray, flatten slightly, leaving at least 2-3cm between each cookie, they spread as they bake. Bake 15-20mins until golden brown. Cool on tray, they will be soft when they first come out of the oven.
