Chocolate Chip Treasure Cookies

Treasure Cookies were the very first cookie recipe I shared on the blog and I figured it was about time we revisit one of my very favorite cookies with a few picture updates! These are by no means healthy but they are very moist, chewy and delicious! If you like coconut and chocolate these are a must make! 

Plus if you like to eat raw dough which to my surprise you all do, this dough has no raw eggs so you can eat until your little heart is content and I won't judge or shoo away your hand!
 I probably ate more then my fair share of dough in the process of making these.
 (Remember we agreed I won't judge you if you don't judge me!) 

Previous Post:
These are such delicious cookies! They are absolutely to die for if you like coconut, nuts and chocolate! This recipe was given to me from my neighbor Cathy. Oh my does she make the most delicious cookies. There have been a few times I had thought I should ask her to do  a Cookies with Cathy Tuesday, maybe once school gets started again. She has such a fantastic cookie recipe collection, is just a kind person and a great woman of god!

This recipe is super easy crush 1 cup graham cracker crumbs and add to mixing bowl.
Add 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or all-purpose, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 cup butter and sweetened condensed milk. Don't mix yet..
Add 1 1/3 cup Coconut..
1 Cup chocolate chips.
Add chopped nuts. I used almonds this time but walnuts and pecans are delicious.. 
Don't forget the vanilla..
It will look like this yummm.... Feel free take a lick or two...
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Cookies are done when edges are lightly browned..
Now isn't that a treasure...

  4. You can never have too many chocolate chip recipes, this one looks so tasty!

  5. Serena, you made cookies with condense milk, coconut and chocolate chips.I wish I your neighbor. They are are going to delicious. Bea cause you made it my friend.

  6. Great post and they look delicious, but seriously, what is everyone's beef with raw dough? Raw dough is not going to kill you. It contains raw eggs. Big deal, so does Hollandaise sauce and I'm sure you don't get all miffed with people when they each that.

    The salmonella thing was a myth spread by health minister Edwina Curry in the early nineties. In 1992 there were only three confirmed cases of salmonella from eggs. She was widely criticised for crashing the egg market with bogus claims. YOU ARE SAFE TO EAT RAW EGGS PEOPLE.

    Aside from that, going to make me some cookies when I get in tonight!
