    Deantini's Note:

    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.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    large p ...

    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)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Melt butter.
    3. 3
      In a bowl mix egg and sugar. Add coconut, lime peel and melted butter.
    4. 4
      Let the mixture set for 10 minute.
    5. 5
      Form the peaks using 2 spoons (or one spoon and fingers) and place peaks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
    6. 6
      Large peaks - bake for approx 10-11 min or until golden.
    7. 7
      Small peaks - bake for approx 7-8 min or until golden.
    8. 8
      If using - melt chocolate of your choice and dip bottoms of the peaks and let cool or drizzle chocolate on top of peaks.

      Yummy! I made these in no time and loved that there were so few ingredients. I think that I would use unsweetened coconut the next time. Also, I didn't have lemon or lime zest so I used a splash of lemon juice. It actually made the cookies a little bit runny so I wouldn't do that next time! These are great and I made 16 of them. Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Deantini! :)

      Flourless coconut cookies. Pretty much a ball of toasted coconut, with the tang of lime. The poking-out ends of the coconut tend to burn, so try to make the balls as smooth as you can. I found it was easiest to put the batter in the refrigerator for a bit to stiffen before forming the cookies.

      These coconut peaks are so yummy with the lime peel. I think my coconut was unsweetened. It was great, not too sweet. This is so easy to do. Thanks Deantini :) Made for 123 hit wonders
