Coconut and chocolate cookies

cookies

Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked cookies, even in this hot weather! Now we all know how obsessed I am with coconut, so yes these bad boys are filled with it… The pieces of gooey chocolate are definitely a treat for the old taste buds too. These cookies are the perfect dessert with a cuppa after dinner, or a cheeky treat at work. I recommend heating them up for 15 seconds in the microwave to get that gooey chocolate deliciousness – and yes that is a word… Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 125g soft butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 200g milk chocolate, chopped

Makes 12 large cookies

Method

Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Place butter and sugar in bowl and beat until creamy. Beat the egg into the mixture and stir through flour, baking powder, coconut and chocolate.

Roll 2 tablespoons of mixture at a time into balls. Place balls on the baking tray and flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly browned. Cool on trays and let the cookies harden.

Happy baking, love Jem x
