Ingredient Checklist


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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The flavor of these cookies are delicious, but, a little sweet for me. I did up the lime juice to 1-1/2” tsps and I am glad I did because it had a beautiful lime flavor. The texture was crispy in the outside and chewy in the inside. It reminded me of a macaroon. I cooked at 350 because the first batch was too dark at 375, but, it might be my oven. Read More
