Dip lime and coconut cookies in white chocolate and find bright flavor in a dark season.
In these cold winter months, its still possible to get bright pops of flavor in your food in the form of citrus! Oranges, grapefruits, lemons and limes all have sharp, delicious flavors that are perfect in a variety of baked goods (see lemon curd linzer torte, orange chocolate tart or coconut grapefruit cupcakes).
In this chewy, tasty little cookie, the flavors of lime (you could use lemon, but I like lime; it's more exotic), coconut and white chocolate all balance together perfectly. If you want a slightly easier version, you could simply mix the chocolate chips in to the cookie dough, but I prefer the prettiness of the half-dipped cookie.
