White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

As I've said before, one of few things my mom likes that almost no one else in our family does is coconut. So even when I don't have coconut in my pantry, I tend to focus on the coconut recipes on Pinterest when searching for Mom's presents. For Christmas I chose a white chocolate coconut cookies recipe from - believe it or not - Ebay (apparently they have a whole section on their site for recipes and how-to guides and such).

White Chocolate Coconut Cookies (source)


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (I have fine sea salt but I have a feeling coarse is just as good)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1  1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1  1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1  1/2 cups white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set dry ingredients aside. 
  3. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream butter and sugars together for about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs, vanilla extract, and coconut extract. Mix until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the coconut and white chocolate chips.
  4. Form the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. 
  5. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
I made about 3 dozen or so. Not sure how many the recipe was supposed to make. Mom loved them. As did Grandma when she tried one.
