Serves 15-18 cookies | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 7-9 minutes

Ingredients

Cookie ingredients:
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2/3 cup shortening
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (Or you can substitute a few butterscotch morsels if you prefer)

Icing ingredients:
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup shortening
2 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup flaked coconut


Combine brown sugar, 2/3 cup shortening, water, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in large bowl. Beat until well blended. Beat eggs into creamed mixture.


In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Mix this mixture into creamed mixture until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.


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.


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.

Notes

My mother loves German Chocolate Cake! These are delicious and fairly easy to make. I also add a few butterscotch morsels to flavor it. They are a big hit at parties!
