Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

EEK! I’ve been holding off on showing these to everyone. I had intended to share them before Easter, but there simply wasn’t enough time because Easter arrived so quickly. So here we are, today!

These are the treats for you coconut-loving folks. They have a ton of coconut flakes, but the brown butter and chocolate are what really set them apart. The tastes of these tropical cookies are enhanced by the additional salt in the butter!

Instructions

Set oven temperature to 350°F. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet.

Place a skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Cook for 3–4 minutes, or until the butter starts to brown. Take off the heat and place in a heat-resistant bowl. Let cool for about five minutes.

Form the dough into spherical tablespoon-sized balls, spacing them 2 inches apart on the baking sheet that has been prepared. For a thinner cookie, I like to gently press down on the dough. For eight minutes, bake. Take the baking sheet out of the oven, turn it over, and tap it on the counter one or two times to flatten it. Bake for a further two to three minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are starting to harden.

On the baking sheet, let the cookies to cool. As they remain on the baking pan, they will continue to cook a little. Add a dash of crumbly salt if preferred. Eat warm (very highly recommended) or allow to cool before storing for up to 4 days in an airtight jar.
