When my son was 4, he wanted a gooey chocolate chip cookie and he thought up these additions to a basic chocolate chip cookie. Vanishes around teenagers both big and small.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch salt
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup flaked coconut
- 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
Cream sugars, butter or margarine and vanilla. Beat in eggs and when smooth add dry ingredients.
Next add the coconut followed by the marshmallows and finally the chips. They will break up the marshmallows with the beater action.
Drop small scoop onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes and remove from oven. Let sit on tray for several minutes to let the marshmallows dry. This will make it easier to get off the tray. Store in a tight-fitted container.
