I invented this cookie several years ago, and they've become a family favorite. A macadoodle is a combination of a coconut macaroon and a snickerdoodle. Adding mini chocolate chips makes them amazing!
- 1 cup butter at room temperature
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsps cream of tartar
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 ½ cups flour
- 3 cups toasted coconut ( to toast place coconut onto a sheet pan in a thin layer. Bake at 350º until golden brown. Watch closely and stir every few minutes. Coconut browns fast)
- 111.5 oz pkg mini chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar together. Blend in eggs. Add soda, cream of tartar, salt and flour. Mix. Add coconut and mix until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop 2 tbsps of dough at a time for each cookie onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350º for 9 minutes until slightly browned. They will be soft so let cool for a couple of minutes before removing from the cookie sheet and cooling on a cooking rack.
Makes 4 dozen.
