White chocolate chip cookies with toasted coconut
These cookies are simple and completely irresistible, just like my chewy coconut cookies.
The toasted coconut turned out to be the perfect complement to the sweet white chocolate chips.
These cookies are adapted with my most favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made a few changes to the batter and I absolutely love the result. It’s the perfect texture. Soft and chewy on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside.
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!

Combine the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients separately then mix the two together. Mix until the dry ingredients are almost fully mixed in.
Add the toasted coconut and white chocolate chips then gently fold everything together with a silicone spatula.
Shape the dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet. Bake the cookies just until the edges are set and begin to turn light brown but the center of the cookie looks soft. This will give you the chewiest texture once they’ve cooled.

- Don’t want to roll the cookies? No problem. Simply use a 1-1.5 tablespoon-sized cookie scoop and plop the dough right onto the baking sheet.
