After my pretty long phase of baking cakes or candies or energy bars I was ready again for my real passion, the Cookies. I have found the following recipe long time ago on David Lebovitz’ homepage but these cookies never made it to my blog until today. Why that? Why have I waited so long to share my experiences with this recipe? Well, there is a simple reason for that: They were never stored longer than one day in the cookies boxes. 🙂 Unfortunately I never had the time to take a photo of them as they were too fast gone again. But things need to be changed and improved constantly and I am happy to have had the chance to store them one day longer this time. IMG_3466

What I also like very much here is the simplicity of the recipe. They are so easy to make and the result is just very tasty. In the original recipe it says to melt dark chocolate and dip the cookies into it. I like this version as well but prefer to mix in some chopped white chocolate. I love the combination of coconut and white chocolate and I really think that they go perfect together!

What is your perfect cookie combination? Think about… 😉

  1. These sound great. I’m pretty happy with the basic chocolate chip and cookie combination, as long as the outside is crunchy and the center soft. The resort we stayed at for our honeymoon provided a new jar of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies everyday. As if being on honeymoon wasn’t good enough, they added cookies.

    1. thank you for your comment! 🙂 and I absolutely agree with you. love it as well when the outside is crunchy and the center soft, these are pretty much the same…wow, your honeymoon sounds great! this must have been really a good time, especially because of the cookies 😉
