Something Sounds Familiar…
Remember the White Chocolate Lime Cookies? Here’s another interesting flavor combination involving citrus and white chocolate, but with another ingredient:
Are you up to the challenge? Although, I personally don’t like coconut, everyone else I know does, and my family once asked me to make a coconut cookie and they ended up loving them! I also once made these for a bake sale and they sold out quick, I even got several returning customers! Is that a good enough reason for you to make these?
White Chocolate Lemon, Coconut Cookies
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick of room temperature butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
zest from one lemon
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 cup toasted sweetened coconut flakes (you can toast coconut flakes by putting them in a 350° F oven for 5-8 minutes, or until golden brown)
1/2 white chocolate chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugars, egg, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice. Sift in flour, baking soda and salt and mix well. Fold in toasted coconut flakes and white chocolate chips. Butter a baking sheet and drop in cookie dough by 2-tablespoon fulls, about two inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes. It’s okay if they’re a bit soft in the middle when you take them out because they’ll firm up.
