Connie's Coconut Chocolate Chippers Recipe

Connie's Coconut Chocolate Chippers Recipe
Almost every family has a favorite cookie recipe that they bake often. Because these recipes are made over and over, they become a “fall-back” when time is short. While often not fancy or innovative, these time-honored cookies spell comfort for family members. Connie Boulton’s family and friends always loved her Coconut Chocolate Chippers, and requested them frequently. Usually there were a dozen or so in the cookie jar, but, of course, they had to be replenished often. Connie’s Coconut Chocolate Chippers have a chewy texture, and are especially good warm from the oven. They store for a week or so in an airtight container, or can be frozen for months.
