I have my favorite go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I thought that it would be fun to put a yummy twist on them by adding coconut. Then I remembered our recipe for Tropical Blondies and how they have delicious rum-flavored extract in them, so I dumped some of that into these cookies too. Throw in a couple of nuts for good measure and you have a killer cookie!
My husband really doesn’t love coconut, but he tried a bite of these and raved about how good they were. Don’t let the rum extract scare you- it gives them such a delicious flavor (but if you choose to leave it out, these cookies are still delicious)!
