Friday Feast Welcomes a Special Guest and Cookie Recipe

Welcome to a special Friday Feast in the tavern!

I’m delighted to share this gooey, tasty cookie recipe, courtesy of Mrs. N. Most know this lovely lady as the co-founder of N. N. Light’s Book Heaven. Yet did you know that she also loves to bake? If you follow her on social media, you’ve seen her sharing her love for tempting treats. Recently, Mrs. N. gave me this cookie recipe. I enjoy using coconut in a lot of my baked goods and these cookies hit it out of the park!

She’s graciously given me her consent to share the recipe with everyone.

As a reminder, if you’d like to feature a recipe on Friday Feast, send an email to And if you’re an author, I’m open to including your recent release and/or sale with your recipe.

Sláinte mhath!


Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now, this makes 24-28 cookies, so you double the recipe to make 4 dozen.

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp coconut or vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

dash of salt

1 cup dark chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat the butter and sugars with an electric mixer or wooden spoon until smooth. Add in the egg and extract and beat well. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (I use a cookie scoop) on an ungreased baking sheet. I put parchment paper down. Bake 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for three minutes before removing from baking sheet.
