Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK, so I don't really need to blog about chocolate chip cookies. I've made them a million times, and you probably have too.  However, I had a threefold motivation to bake something completely easy and decadent tonight.  First, my dad has been helping me a lot with the painting, and I wanted to reward him/bribe him.  Cookies are a good bribe.  Second, it's been exactly two months since T broke up with me. I'm doing pretty well now but I'm not above using it as an excuse to make cookies.  Lastly, they announced layoffs at work today.  I'm still not sure if I'm affected - some things are still up in the air.  But a lot of my coworkers got notice.
So if there ever was a night skip going to the gym and make cookies instead, it's tonight. I whipped up a batch of the standard issue Toll House recipe, but added about a cup of chopped up pecans with a coconut-toffee coating.  They came out exactly as you might expect - very decadent.
Now it's time to start drinking....
