  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars together. Add egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and coconut extract, mix until well combined.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until it is just incorporated.
  4. Add chocolate chips, coconut and toffee bits, stir until blended. (The cookie dough will be thick and fairly stiff). .

Notes

My favorite way to toast coconut is to put it in a large skillet and cook it on the stovetop over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, cook it until it’s golden brown (about 4-5 minutes). Another way is to heat the oven to 350°F and spread coconut evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring occasionally.
