White Chocolate Cherry Coconut Cookies
White Chocolate Cherry Coconut Cookies have it all! White chocolate chips, check. Coconut, check. Cherries, check. Texture, check. Chewiness, check. Taste: outrageous, check! I started with one of my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes. I swapped out white chocolate chips for the chocolate chips. Then I added coconut and dried cherries. Yum.
White Chocolate Cherry Coconut Cookies are incredible. If you’re a chocolate lover, a cherry lover and a coconut lover, you will adore these lovely cookies. Plus they’re perfect for holiday parties and Christmas Cookie Exchanges. But since they’re made with dried cherries, they can be made anytime of the year.
I made these festive cookies last month to take to my dentist’s office staff for my regular six-month dental cleaning. They love getting sweet treats from their patients. I love making goodies for them. We’ve been going to that office for 18 years so we know everyone quite well. They all have a sweet tooth so they look forward to our visits! They loved these jewels.
I recommend White Chocolate Cherry Coconut Cookies for your holiday baking as well. They’re beautiful in texture, taste and appearance. Your family and friends are sure to enjoy them as much as my dentist’s office did. Consider baking up a batch of White Chocolate Cherry Coconut Cookies soon and put a big smile on everyone’s face at your house.

Soften butter. Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Dissolve baking soda in hot water, add mixture with salt to other ingredients in mixing bowl.
Cream ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add coconut and white chocolate chips.

Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 for about 15-17 minutes or until done.
