This is a buttery coconut-pecan cookie. The crunch comes from the pecans and coconut, but the cookie itself is chewy. I do not add salt to this recipe, as I think with salted butter enough salt is present.

Delicious! I didn't alter the ingredients at all; however I whipped the butter and sugar together for 5 minutes before adding the egg and vanilla. This made for a crispy cookie not chewy. These cookies are wonderful and will be made again (and again). Read More
