Coconut White and Milk Chocolate Cookies

I adapted this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod.  These turned out amazing.  They are a softer, cake-like cookie loaded with both white and milk chocolate chips.  In this recipe it would be fine to use any of the chocolate chips...whether it be semi-sweets, all white chocolate or all milk chocolate.  -Kristin

1 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3.4 oz. package Coconut Creme instant pudding mix (Jell-O Brand)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add in coconut creme pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla extract. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the coconut and chips.
  • Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slight golden and set. Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes.
