Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs lightly beaten

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla (honestly, I never measure vanilla)
1 cup (or more) sweetened flaked coconut
1 12oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, soda and salt together and set aside. Combine shortening, sugars, vanilla and coconut extract and beat until creamy. Add beaten eggs and flour mixture. Mix well. Sir in chocolate chips and coconut. Roll into balls and bake 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
