Coconut and White Chocolate Cookies

I feel like I am going through a bit of writers block right now. Not that I've ever been super long winded here, but this week I can't seem to figure out anything to write. I don't know why it is, but I have a pile of recipes to be posted and don't want to take a week off because I can't write! :)

I love coconut so when I saw these cookies I knew that I would be making them. They were absolutely fantastic the way they were but when I make them again I will add in a little lime zest. I think it would just jazz them up a little!


Coconut and White Chocolate Cookies
Recipe from Once Upon a Plate

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup coconut
⅔ cups white chocolate chunks or chips

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and coconut and mix with a rubber spatula or butter knife until a soft dough forms. Add the chocolate.

With your hands, or a food scoop mold 2 tablespoons of cookie mixture into a flat round. Place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper or silpat silicone liner. Leave 1" space between each cookie to allow for cookies to spread. , leaving room to spread. Repeat with remaining mixture. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden. Allow to cool on trays.

The addition of lime zest sounds like it would be perfect for these cookies.

That's me all the time anymore. :( I agree with Eliana. Only thing better would have been to read you were mailing some out to commmenters named Ingrid. lol
