I have a huge love for white chocolate chip cookies with macadamia nuts. I wanted to make some the other night but then realized that I was out of nuts. Being that it was already late in the evening, I really didn’t want to make a trip to the store. I rummaged through my pantry to find coconut and brought these toasted coconut white chocolate chip cookies into fruition.

These cookies are simple and completely irresistible.

The toasted coconut turned out to be the perfect complement to the sweet white chocolate chips. It’s the last little taste of tropical as we kiss summer goodbye.

These cookies are made with my most favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I absolutely love it and use it for almost every single cookie I make. It’s the perfect texture. Soft and chewy on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside.

Chill the dough for 2 hours or overnight. Cold cookie dough is essential for a perfectly baked cookie. They will turn out thicker and chewier.

The cookies are loaded with toasted coconut and white chocolate chips. Toasting the coconut enhances the flavor and gives it a crunchy texture. The crunchy, soft, and chewy texture of these cookies is phenomenal.

The white chocolate chips become melty, the toasted coconut is crunchy, and the sweet dough that surrounds it all is soft and chewy. This is one tasty cookie!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF degrees. Spread the coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes or until the coconut is light brown; set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir with a whisk. In a separate larger bowl, combine the butter and sugars; whisk until no clumps remain. Add the vanilla and egg; whisk until combined. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture; stir just until moistened. Gently fold in the coconut and white chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350ºF degrees. Roll the dough into 1 tablespoon sized balls. Place the dough balls 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Recipe Notes

The cookie dough needs to chill for at least 2 hours before baking. Plan ahead to allow enough time for this.
