Directions

  1. Combine brown sugar, 2/3 cup shortening, water, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in large bowl. Beat until well blended. Beat eggs into creamed mixture.
  2. In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Mix this mixture into creamed mixture until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Place cookie sheet in the middle of the oven. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 7 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are set. Do not over bake. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
  4. To Make Frosting: Begin by combining evaporated milk, white sugar, 1/4 cup shortening, and egg yolks in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until thickened. Remove pan from heat. Stir 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, pecans, and coconut into the warm mixture. Cool completely, and frost cooled cookies.

My family loved these chewy cookies. The only thing I changed is I didn't make the homemade icing, instead I purchased the Betty Crocker pecan frosting that's already prepared (much cheaper and easier than buying the nuts and making it yourself).

Great cookies - very rich and chocolatey. Make sure cookies are completely cooled before icing or they break apart.

Perfect! I found this recipe doing an ingredient search, as I am down to bare bones. I didn't have Baking Soda, but they still turned out very well. My hubby is happily munching away on a warm one right now. Will def use this again!
