Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Chip Cookies are so delicious they’ll soon become one of your favorites! In fact, they have the stamp of approval from a group of teenage boys who loved these cookies. 🙂 The basic recipe includes two of my favorite things: coconut (toasted, in this case), and white chocolate (as in chips). Yum. These cookies are absolutely terrific and certainly great to make for potlucks, tailgating parties or any time you want to fix a mouthwatering treat.

I was looking through my pantry back in February trying to use up some of the ingredients I had left over from Christmas baking. Namely coconut, pecans, and white chocolate chips. This recipe used two of the three so I thought it would be just the trick.

Our church hosted a Disciple Now Weekend the last weekend in February. The youth in our church are divided up by age into different groups and stay overnight with a different host home, plus the leader for that group. It’s a great way for them to get to meet other friends their age and learn about the Bible at the same time. I took care of preparing several meals at two different homes.

I served these delicious cookies for dessert along with a batch of Super Sloppy Joes, Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes and my Creamy Grape Salad. Listen, you have to be something right when 10th grade boys rave over a Creamy Grape Salad and cookies made with coconut. After all, those aren’t everyone’s favorites. But they sure enjoyed them. The host mother texted me that night saying everything had been gobbled up and they especially loved the cookies. It sure made me smile.

If you’re looking for some terrific cookies for your next party, potluck, baby shower or other occasion, then look no farther than Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re delicious and sure to please….even picky eaters. 🙂

    The dough seemed dry and crumbly. Was the amount of butter in the recipe correct? Seemed like an odd amount.

      Hi, Onna. This dough is not normally dry and crumbly. 2/3 cup butter = 10 2/3 tablespoons. You have to stir the ingredients very well, and keep stirring until the dough is mixed well. Another thing may be the eggs. It needs large eggs, but unfortunately I’ve had “large eggs” that seemed more like medium. Which means they don’t have the liquid necessary to moisten the dough. If you feel the dough is still crumbly you can add a little more butter or part of an egg – just enough to moisten the ingredients a little more.
