I hope your week is going fantastic! As a part of my gourmet cookie series, today I’m sharing my recipe for White Chocolate Toasted Coconut Cookies! If white chocolate and coconut make your taste buds dance then you’re going to LOVE these gourmet cookies! I added white chocolate chips to my Toasted Coconut Cookie recipe at Baxter’s recently and the white chocolate took these cookies to a whole new level of deliciousness! First of all, if you missed my post on How to Toast Coconut you’ll definitely want to check that out, because I updated the post to show you how to toast smaller batches of coconut too, like you’ll need for today’s yummy recipe.

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, both sugars and the salt until creamy.
Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy.
Notes: Mix on low speed until the eggs are blended in. Then on medium speed about a minute, then on high speed for one another minute. The mixture should be a pale yellow color and very fluffy.
On low speed, add the first cup of flour with the baking powder and soda.
Add the remainder of the flour while mixing on low speed again.
Stir in the cooled toasted coconut and white chocolate chips.
Use a 2 ounce cookie scooper and evenly place the dough balls on an ungreased baking sheet. Press the dough down just a little.
Bake in a preheated 360 degrees oven for 10-12 minutes, or until light golden brown and the cookies start to crackle on top.
