Coconut-Pecan Cookies


This is a buttery coconut-pecan cookie. The crunch comes from the pecans and coconut, but the cookie itself is chewy. I do not add salt to this recipe, as I think with salted butter enough salt is present.

  • 1 cup coconut flakes

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • cup lightly packed brown sugar

  • cup white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Toast coconut flakes and pecans in batches until lightly browned and fragrant, about 3 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Cream butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Beat to combine.

  4. Combine flour and baking soda in a bowl. Add to butter mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in toasted pecans and coconut.

  5. Place scoops of dough on the prepared baking sheet using a 1 1/2-tablespoon spring-hinged scoop.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Carefully remove from baking sheet and transfer to a cooling rack.
