Deb - here is the Island Cookie Recipe
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) White/Vanilla Chips
1 cup flaked coconut, toasted, if desired (I don't toast)
3/4 cup macadamia nuts or walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels, coconut and nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Enjoy. Makes about 3 dozen cookies. Yum. I have some frozen dough at home. Now I'm going to have to bake them when I get home.
