I hope you’ve all been having a lovely week 🙂 . I’m in the middle of my mock exams at the moment in preparation for the Leaving Cert (ie. the final exams to get into college here in Ireland), which means I really should be dedicating all my spare time to studying. So naturally, I decided to do some baking instead. Because really, no study session is truly complete without an excessive amount of snack breaks, procrastination and regret.
Anyways, I thought with the weekend coming up it was the perfect time to share this super simple recipe with you guys. These soft, chewy cookies were deliciously addictive – it took all my self control to wait and take a few photos before eating them. I’ve always had a slight white chocolate obsession and, paired with coconut, the two truly make a perfect match! I also love that this recipe doesn’t involve chilling the dough, because really who has time for that sort of thing.
Of course, you can enjoy the cookies as they are or, if you want to put a little extra effort into presentation, drizzle some melted white chocolate over them and top with some more coconut.
Let me know in the comments below if you guys try them out and what your go-to study snack is!
Step 1 In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
Step 2 Add egg and vanilla essence to the mixture. Beat until light and fluffy.
Step 3 Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Combine well until mixture forms a crumbly dough.
Step 4 Roughly chop chocolate. Or alternatively buy chocolate chips, which is no doubt easier – I just didn’t have any on hand.
Step 5 Add chopped chocolate and coconut. Mix until well combined.
Step 6 Roll the dough into small balls and place them onto a lined baking tray.
Step 7 Lightly press down on each ball with a fork.
Step 8 Bake cookies at 180’C/350’C for 10-15 minutes, or until they’re a pale golden brown.
Step 9 Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Step 10 Enjoy!
