2 dozen cookies


  • cooking spray

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 6 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 fresh lime

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 2 cups finely shredded coconut, divided, or more to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly spray 2 cookie sheets.

  2. Combine butter, sugars, and egg in a bowl using a wooden spoon, not an electric mixer. Grate lime zest into the mixture. Stir in 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon lime juice.

  3. Combine flour, white chocolate chips, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Mix in butter mixture until a stiff dough forms. Fold in 1 cup coconut.

  4. Place remaining coconut on a flat dish. Roll dough into ping pong ball-sized balls; roll in coconut. Arrange dough on the prepared cookie sheets; do not press down.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned around the edges, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use white chocolate chunks instead of chips, if desired.

If dough does not seem stiff in step 3, refrigerate for 1 hour or mix in 2 more tablespoons of flour.
