Here is another Pinteres Cookie recipe for our Alpha Class. It also comes from Tracey's Culinary Adventures.
**Note this does not make a big batch of cookies. If you look at the measurements and compare it to a typical chocolate chip cookie dough for instance, you will notice that it is approx half of that. Just a little heads up.
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and then the vanilla. With the mixer on low, gradually add the dry ingredients, beating just until combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips and coconut until evenly distributed.
Using a small cookie scoop portion the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 9 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set. Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks and let the cookies cool for a few minutes then remove the cookies to the wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough.
I think I liked these best out of the recipes that I tried today. When I make them again, I am certainly going to double the recipe and make a normal size batch of cookies.
