White Chocolate Coconut Cookies are sweet, crunchy and delicious treat. A butter cookie that is dipped in white chocolate and then dipped in coconut flakes.
My oldest son loves these cookies.
I usually ask the boys what cookie recipe they would like me to make for their birthdays, or for school events where I am brining a snack. This cookie is quickly yelled out when I ask my oldest. Well, usually he yells out these and Snickerdoodles. The boy loves his cookies.
Really it is surprising that he likes these so much because they are not your typical flat cookie. These are a bit more complex in flavor and texture.
I like making them and boxing them up to give as gifts for birthdays because they are so elegant looking.
Not to worry, even though they may look fancy they are simple, delicious.
You can also freeze this dough to use later.
Hint: I freeze the dough in late October – early November and pull dough out over Thanksgiving to make a batch up in 15 minutes.
To freeze dough: after combining all ingredients roll dough in a log shape, wrap in plastic wrap and then foil. When ready to bake, place on counter to thaw. When still cool cut into one inch slices and proceed.
