  • ISO: Recipe for a coconut-pecan cookie
    Folks...I just ate the best cookie I think I have ever tasted. I purchased it from the bakery at Harris Teeter grocery store.

    DH and I are fighting over who gets the last cookie. He thinks he deserves it...saying that he feels sure that some of you can tell me how to make them.

    I'll try to explain it and if any of you have a recipe that sounds anywhere near this, please share it with me.

    The cookie:
    about 2 inches in diameter
    not a macaroon
    looks like an oatmeal cookie in color
    did not have oatmeal in it
    rich and sweet
    loaded with coconut and pecans
    pecans might have been toasted
    cookie was not real dry
    had a rough texture
    soft cookie

    Thank you for your help.

    Coconut Pecan Cookies
    Yield: 36 Cookies

    1/4 cup shortening
    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/8 tsp. baking soda
    1 egg
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup coconut
    1 cup chopped pecans

    In a medium mixing bowl cream shortening and butter or margarine together. Add the sugar, brown sugar, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla; beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour by hand. Stir in the coconut and pecans.

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie
    sheet. Bake at 375F degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden.
    Cool cookies on the cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire
    rack and let cool.
