Adapted from Big Mama’s Home Kitchen

1/2 C butter, softened (1 stick)
1 C brown sugar
1 egg
1 T milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp coconut extract
1 3/4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 C white chocolate chips
1/2 C flaked coconut, toast in a skillet first
1/2 C Macademia Nuts, also toasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a stand mixerl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.  Add the egg, milk and vanilla and mix for 2 more minutes.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add to wet mixture until combined.

Add the white chocolate chips, macadamia nuts,  and coconut.  Stir with a wooden spoon.

Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.  Press them down slightly and bake for 10 minutes.  When they start to crack and are just slightly golden around the edges, take them out of the oven.   Let the cookies continue to cook on the hot cookie sheet for another few minutes.
