Coconut Chews

Last night heavy winds and lots of rain came through our area.  The tornadoes did not touch down here.  Yazoo City was hit again though.  They have reported lots of damage and some injuries.

The temperatures are supposed to be dropping to a low 29 degrees tonight.  Oh no…….I do not like that. LOL

John finally got a call from the lady at The Back Store letting him know his new chair is in.  Yeah!!!  He will be going to pick it up tomorrow.  I will post a picture of it.  Now the lawn chair can retire back into the basement.

This afternoon I was looking through some cookie recipes on the internet and found one that sounded good and that I had all the ingredients to make.  They were called Coconut Chews.  Let me just say they taste good but they were not very chewy.  The only thing that I changed about the recipe was the flour.  I used self rising flour instead of all-purpose and baking powder.

001Plate of Coconut Chews. 

In case anyone would like to try this recipe…..here it is:

Coconut Chews

¼ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 tsp. Baking powder
¼ tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
½ cup flaked coconut
½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Melt butter. Stir in sugar, flour, egg, baking powder, salt and   vanilla, blending well.  Add the coconut and chopped nuts.  Turn into a well buttered 9 inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Cut into 16 squares as soon as you take them out of the oven.  Cool.

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
