I was bored at home, waiting h-o-u-r-s for the AT&T technician to come over to work on my Internet. Rather than pacing the floor and getting frustrated, I decided to bake.
Because today is the hottest day of the summer so far (100°F), I didn’t want anything heavy. So I created these cookies featuring the summer ingredients of lime, coconut, and white chocolate. They’re light and crispy and yummy.
Lime-Coconut White Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 stick of butter, room temperature
- ½ c. coconut oil, room temperature
- 3/4 c. white sugar
- ½ c. brown sugar
- zest from 3 key limes
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 2-½ c. all-purpose flour
- 3/4 c. shredded coconut
- 2 c. white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, cream butter and coconut oil with sugars. Mix in vanilla, eggs, and lime zest.
In a separate bowl, combine baking soda, salt, and flour. Mix into butter mixture. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir in coconut and white chocolate chips.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place three inches apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 11–14 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned on the edges. Cool five minutes and then transfer to rack.
