Lemon Coconut Cookies

The Buttered Home loves the freshness of lemon. Man, I could add it to anything. Now, Big D loves him some sugar cookies. They are so easy to make but every once in a while, I need a pop of flavor and some texture in my cookies. This recipe incorprates lemon juice and zest for a subtle pop of flavor and the coconut flakes and coconut sugar add just a touch of texture and slight sweetness to the already loved sugar cookie.

What you will need

  1. 1 cup of butter, slightly melted

  2. 1 & 1/2 cups of sugar

  3. 1 egg

  4. 1 tsp of vanilla

  5. zest of one lemon

  6. 1 tbsp of lemon juice

  7. 1 tsp baking soda

  8. 1/2 tsp baking powder

  9. 1/2 tsp salt

  10. 3 cups plain flour

  11. 1 cup shredded coconut flakes

  12. 1/2 cup coconut sugar for garnish(can use regular sugar here)

Slightly melt the butter and add sugar, egg, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla. Mix well. Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour and coconut on top of wet ingredients. Mix well, just until combined. I use a small ice cream scoop and scoop out the cookie dough. Form into a ball and just press tops into a little coconut sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheet or baking mat. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes. Cool on a rack for 10-15 minutes.


Cookie perfection.

These lemon coconut cookies are just the right about of sweet. They are perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Just like in all baking, don’t be intimidated by the ingredient list. It all comes together very quickly and in no time you will have yummy cookies.

Enjoy!
