Chef Chuck's Coconut Cookies

Biscotti della Cocco


These cookies are light and airy with an outer crunch and a soft chewy center. A hit of orange and chocolate in every bite, life is so sweet!

Coconut Cookies
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup confectioners sugar

1 1/4 cup sweet coconut
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon orange zest

chocolate for drizzling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk egg whites till soft peaks form then add vanilla continue to whisk till firm peaks appear. Gently fold in sugar, coconut, flour and zest. Let sit for 10 minutes for coconut to soak up moisture. Place on baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 12 minutes. Cool and drizzle chocolate on top.

  7. These look perfect Chef Chuck, just the right amount of chocolate drizzle to enhance the coconut ever so slightly. Perfection with a shot of espresso!
