If you are like me, you are always on the lookout for new or interesting cookie recipes. If memory serves, this Crunchy Coconut Crisp Cookies recipe comes from my mom.
My mom and I usually have different tastes in cookies. My wife, on the other hand, is not so picky when it comes to cookies. That being said, this is one cookie recipe we all agree on!
Making these cookies are super easy. Once all the ingredients are combined per the instructions below, the dough will be very thick. Almost the density of peanut butter. It's very important to leave enough space between the cookies as they will increase in diameter as they bake. I used a cookie scoop and they ended up almost 5 inches in diameter.
The other thing you need to be careful of is to let them cool on the baking sheet after you take them out of the oven. The cookies will be pretty thin and will break if you try to move them to the wire rack too soon. Patience grasshopper.
Once cooled though, they will be nice and crunchy. They have a nice coconut flavor as you would expect and are nice and nice and crunchy!
