In August 2003 Jorge surprised me for our 20th anniversary and took me to Holland, Michigan.  We stayed at a bed and breakfast called the Dutch Colonial Inn.  We really enjoyed ourselves there and we felt very special.  One of the wonderful things they had for their guests were the most delicious chocolate chip cookies.  For those that know Jorge, he LOVES chocolate chip cookies.  We both fell in love with the cookies.  The innkeepers were gracious in giving me the recipe and I made them and surprised Jorge.  Needless to say, that is the only recipe that he wants me to make.

Here's the recipe:

3 1/3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup Crisco
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 pkg chocolate chips (4 cups)
2 cups toasted coconut
1 1/2 cup chopped nuts (macadamina, walnuts, or pecans)

Mix all the ingredients, then add the toasted coconut, nuts and chocolate chips.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
