German Chocolate Cookies

German Chocolate Cookies

German Chocolate Cakes is also one of my favorite cakes so I thought I would try making German Chocolate Cookies. I left the pecans out of this batch, but you can add them if you like. Warm and gooey, nothing says welcome home from a hard day at work like cookies fresh from the oven. Pour some milk and relax!


2 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Cup Unsweetened Dark Cocoa Powder

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Cup (2 Sticks) Softened Butter

2 Cups Sugar

2 Eggs

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

2 Cups Sweetened Coconut Flakes

1 Cup Chopped Pecans (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium-size bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and kosher salt. In a large-size bowl cream butter and sugar for 5 minutes with electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture to creamed mixture just to combine. Stir in coconut and pecans. Scoop 2 tablespoons dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies for 12 minutes until edges are set. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks. Makes about 3 dozen cookies
