Rich Jackfruit Cookies


Jackfruit might be hard to find and take a while to dry, but I feel that it is totally worth the effort with how well these cookies turned out.

36 small cookies


  • cup packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup butter

  • ¼ cup shortening

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons molasses

  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup rolled oats

  • cup coconut flakes

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup chopped dried jackfruit


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Combine brown sugar, butter, shortening, and white sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Mix in egg, molasses, heavy cream, and vanilla extract.

  3. Mix flour, oats, coconut flakes, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to the creamed mixture; mix until dough is just combined. Fold in jackfruit.

  4. Drop small spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

If you can't find dried jackfruit, you can make your own. Separate all pods from a fresh jackfruit. Spread on a baking sheet. Bake at 170 degrees F (75 degrees C) until dry and leathery, 6 to 10 hours. Cut into pea-size pieces with scissors.
