When I was little, I adored spending time in the kitchen with my grandma baking sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, M&M cookies, etc. As I got older and started baking on my own, I started experimenting and throwing more ingredients into my cookies. Why not try with a scoop of oatmeal, coconut oil instead of butter, a pinch of cinnamon, crushed up chocolate bar instead of chips, you know, that kind of thing. And still, to this day, I love when an "experimental" cookie comes out tasting like an ooey-gooey, "everything but the kitchen sink" dream.
Here's a recipe for a cookie that appears to have a slew of random ingredients -- cinnamon, chocolate chip, and coconut -- but somehow, they all work together in perfect harmony to create an out-of-this-world flavor experience. Oh yeah!
