Lemon Coconut Crinkle Cookies Recipe


Lemon Coconut Crinkle Cookies

These are delicious, if I may say so myself. Lemon and coconut is a great combination, and the ‘crinkles’ add nice crunch and added sweetness.

Recipe source: Vanderbilt Wife

Ingredients
¼ cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar (I used ½ cup)
Juice and zest of one lemon
2 eggs
1½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsweetened, flaked coconut
Powdered sugar

Ingredients
1.      Cream butter, sugar, lemon zest, and eggs until smooth. Add lemon juice and mix until combined
2.      In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
3.      Add the flour mixture and coconut to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined
4.      Chill dough for 1 hour, or freeze for 20 minutes
5.      Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet or one lined with parchment paper
6.      Bake at 150°C / 300°F until edges are set, around 15-20 minutes.

  4. The cookies look light, delicate and perfectly crinkled. I am sure lemon and coconut worth perfectly together (though I haven't tried this combination yet).
