Equipment

  • large saucepan
  • cookie sheet
  • waxed paper
  • tablespoon scoop

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups pecans chopped or whole
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes or coconut shreds
  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 stick unsalted butter 1/2 cup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Prepare a large cookie sheet, or several sheets, with waxed paper. In a bowl, stir together the pecans and coconut.
  • In a saucepan on medium-high heat, stir together the sugar, milk, corn syrup, and butter. Continue to stir while bringing the mixture to a rolling boil. Stabilize the heat so that it continues to boil for 3 minutes.
  • Remove pot from heat. Pour in the vanilla. Follow up with the pecans and coconut, stirring well to coat everything in goopy hot sugar.
  • Use a tablespoon scoop to dole out cookies on the waxed paper. If they fall apart a bit, carefully use a spoon or the scoop to shape them again. Let cookies set, at least 15 minutes. Carefully peel them away from the waxed paper; note that the first scoops may be more prone to stick.
  • Store cookies in a sealed container.
