Falling Flat (Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies)

There have been some ups and downs around these parts lately. Luckily, there have been WAY more ups than downs, and the ups have peaked quite high. One recipe I made recently demonstrates this very idea.

I adore Dawn of Vanilla Sugar. She makes some of the most amazing looking baked goods. I seriously want to take up camp in her kitchen.  


She recently posted a recipe for double chocolate coconut cookies. The minute I saw them, I knew I had to make them!! I stirred up all of my ingredients. I used a cookie scoop to place the dough onto the cookie sheet and placed them in the oven. When the timer went off, I ran to the oven expecting to see the gorgeous puffy cookies Dawn had made….but I saw pancakes:


Tear….I’m a puffy cookie kind of girl. The good news? They’re amazing. Their flavor wayyyyyyy overtakes the fact that they’re flat vs. puffy:


So, sometimes things don’t end up looking or being exactly how we think they should look/be. A lot of the time, that doesn’t matter Smile. Thanks for the delicious recipe Dawn!

I love Dawn & her baking creations. All my baking seems to fall flat, lol. These cookies look so good even flat :)
