White Chocolate Coconut Cookies
Hey there! I see your search of delicious desserts has brought you here. This is my first dessert recipe on the blog. Hope you like it.
I have never been much of a desserts person. I was always the kid who loved spicy food. I’m talking raw green chilli, extra hot sauce, more than the required serving of the fiery chutney that’s going to set my mouth on fire. And naturally, I grew up into an adult who doesn’t have a spice tolerance anymore. You’d think it would make me lean more towards desserts, right? Well, it didn’t.
However, once I started cooking, I realised how much I love making desserts. From massive cakes that last for days to my own twist on traditional sweets and decadent cookies. I might not have a sweet tooth, but I have sugar cravings that take over all functioning areas of my brain. I was trying to get out of a non-productive rut when I decided to make these White Chocolate Coconut Cookies. They were so flavourful that one of those cookies was enough but I couldn’t stop eating more.
I know you’d have enough of reading, so here is the recipe.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 150 grams white chocolate chunks
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup almonds
- Pinch of salt
- Melt butter in a saucepan until golden. Stir in the brown sugar and let it cool for about an hour.
- Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
- Once the butter mixture has cooled down, add the white sugar and beat it until it is fluffy and smooth. The texture should be creamy.
- Add the vanilla and egg to the butter, followed by the flour mixture. Stir in the almonds, white chocolate chunks and the coconut.
- Preheat the oven to 175° Roll the dough into 2 inch balls and line them on the baking tray. Make sure to grease the tray or line it with parchment paper.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes at 175° C. Let the cookies rest for 15-20 minutes before you start hogging.
And that’s it! Enjoy your delicious cookies. Dunk them in milk or enjoy with hot coffee.
