It has to stop snowing here in the North East. Yes, we have like 2 feet of snow just sitting on the ground outside and more in our forecast this week! But more-so than that, every time it snows I am literally beckoned to bake something. The snow whispers “make something sweet and delicious…make something sweet and delicious!” And, well, I am a directions-follower, so… When it snowed on Saturday I decided it was time to finally try this recipe for Lemon Coconut White Chocolate Chip Cookies that I had been saving for, well….a snowy night stuck inside.
This is a pretty basic recipe with all the usual suspects of a cookie recipe: butter, flour, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla – but also some unique things like coconut, white chocolate chips, and lemon pudding. The lemon pudding is such an interesting ingredient where the lemon flavor comes from (obviously) but also adds a soft, chewiness to the cookies.
The lemon, coconut, white chocolate may not sound like an ideal combination but I assure you – these are spectacular and a nice change from a usual chocolate-based cookie. I also am a big fan of lemony desserts and this has just enough of that tart-ness…so good!
