Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Cookies

Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Cookies

These coconut white chocolate cookies are so-so-so good. I was asked to make desserts for an “Island-themed” party; so, I looked up a coconut cookie recipe and found this Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe by Baked by an Introvert. I am generally dubious of coconut in baking, but in this recipe, the toasted coconut is not overpowering and makes for a sweet crunchy texture.

Of course, I am known to not follow a recipe exactly, so I made a few changes to the original; including adding a bit more butter and coconut and using a little less flour. Plus I doubled the recipe because we love our cookies in the Macauley household. These cookies paired well with the pineapple-shaped sugar cookies that I had also made for the party.

I recently pulled a batch out of the freezer and they tasted delicious. I sometimes freeze cookies so that I don’t eat the whole batch in a couple days. So put these Coconut White Chocolate Cookies on your freezable cookie list.

Notes:

  1. The original recipe called for sweetened coconut, I used unsweetened because I find white chocolate to be sweet enough. I found with the unsweetened, I had to bake it a bit longer to toast. Careful not to burn the coconut though. I used a metal cookie sheet as it tends to toast better than a stone pan.
  2. I made 1 inch balls flattened them with a fork.
  3. I used a Stone Cookie Sheet to bake the cookies to perfection, remember that the first batch of cookies take 2-3min longer if you don’t preheat the stone.

    Wow! They look so good and with 2-1/2 cups of coconut, they have to be!!!
    We’re in the middle of moving, but once we get all settled I’m going to try these gluten free. I really really want one, or three, right now…
