Bliss Cookies

Thanks to my friend Tom for coming up with the name for these cookies! I hope you find them blissful, too!

Bliss Cookies


1 cup melted butter (2 sticks)
1 ½ cups white sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs (beaten)
2 ½ cups flour
¾ cups chocolate chips
¾ cups peanut butter chips
2 cups coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl.

Then mix in the white sugar and the brown sugar. Add the salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Mix well.

In a small bowl, beat the two eggs. (I like beating the eggs in a separate bowl just in case any eggshell pieces fall in.)

Add the beaten eggs to the mixture in the large bowl and stir thoroughly.

Add about half of the flour and incorporate it into the dough. Then add the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and coconut. Stir until the chips are evenly distributed.

Finally add the remainder of the flour and mix well.

Drops by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. (I like to use a cookie scooper. It’s like an ice cream scooper but much smaller.) If the dough is too sticky to handle, refrigerate it for a while first.

Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. To make sure your cookies remain moist, remove them before they start to really brown.

Cool cookies for two minutes before transferring from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

Yields about 5 dozen cookies.
