1/3 Photos of Coconut Peaks
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.

Units: US | Metric
- 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)
- 1Preheat oven to 350°F.
- 2Melt butter.
- 3In a bowl mix egg and sugar. Add coconut, lime peel and melted butter.
- 4Let the mixture set for 10 minute.
- 5Form the peaks using 2 spoons (or one spoon and fingers) and place peaks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- 6Large peaks - bake for approx 10-11 min or until golden.
- 7Small peaks - bake for approx 7-8 min or until golden.
