Coconut Peaks
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
10 ingredients
20 servings
A delightful and easy cookie; recipe is from Denmark. The recipe makes 30 small or 20 large peaks. I strongly recommend that you add the extra step of dipping in chocolate as it gives the cookie that extra dimension and wow factor. I add a bit of butter to the melted chocolate and drip it on top of the peaks. I have updated the recipe measurements thanks to Hokies' hard work - the conversion from metric to cups did not work out, too much of some ingredients, too little of others. The current recipe reflects the accurate measurements after have scaled ingredients and cross checked cup measurements.

  • 1/4 cup butter, this is 3 tbsp of melted butter, i would say that you could get away with 2 1/2 tbsp melted butter (50 g)
  • 2 eggs, if your eggs are very large i would recommend that you only use 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons sugar (85 g)
  • 2 2/3 cups sweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons lime peel (or lemon peel, i used 1 tbsp and added an extra tbsp of coconut)
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate (or your preferred chocolate type)
