Christmas Cookies: White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Christmas Cookies: White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Are you making a last minute dash to cookie exchange and need an easy/delicious/no-fail recipe? This is one of my very favorite cookies ever. This white chocolate coconut macaroon cookie tastes great, and it’s super uncomplicated to make. It’s almost on the level of cheating it’s so easy, and great for cookie exchanges.

Quick Christmas cookie recipe perfect for cookie exchanges or neighbor gifts: White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

The big secret shortcut is that these cookies use one of those pre-packaged bags of sugar cookie mix. I like the Betty Crocker variety myself, but you have options. I’d like to say I made this one up, but Betty claims the rights to this one!

White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

1 package sugar cookie mix
1 stick butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix together sugar cookie mix, butter, egg and coconut extract. Once the dough is well-blended, add coconut flakes and white chocolate chips.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 9 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Optional: Melt 1/2 cup white chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon shortening in the microwave. Tip: melt chips for 30 seconds, stir, then in 15 second intervals until chips are completely melted.  Drizzle the white chocolate over the cookies and sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles for holiday cheer.
