  • Yield: Yields: about 48 cookies (serving size: 2 cookies)
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Bake:10 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$0.44


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups white-chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped dried mango, papaya or pineapple (or a combination)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, such as almonds, pecans or walnuts, optional


1. Preheat oven to 375ºF; line 2 large baking sheets with parchment. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

2. Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat both sugars and butter until well mixed, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla and eggs. Add flour mixture and mix just until a dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut and nuts, if desired.

3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets, spacing about 3 inches apart. Bake until golden around edges, 9 to 10 minutes. Let stand on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
