Brown Butter Coconut Cookies

By Amy Meiers

These cookies are so flavorful and chewy. They stay nice and soft because of the coconut…perfect to hand out during the holidays!

Makes about 4 dozen cookies
¾ cups unsalted butter
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
2 cups flour
½ baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg and 1 yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup white chocolate chips
In a medium skillet heat the butter until browned and nutty smelling then set aside to cool slightly. In the same pan that the butter was cooked in toast the coconut until golden…set aside to cool. Heat the oven to 350.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside. Cream together the browned butter and sugars, add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Add the dry mixture then once mostly combined add the white chocolate chips and toasted coconut. Scoop out the cookie dough using a small cookie scoop and bake for 10-12 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Enjoy!
