Chocolate Chips Desiccated Coconut Cookies LTU #16










My kids love to eat Subway cookies so I decided to bake for them, finally decided to try out this recipe since the blogger said that this recipe is the best for her and even better than her favorite
cookies at Subway.

I added in desiccated coconut to 1/2 portion of the cookies dough to join the LTU event.

Recipe adapted from Lilly Bites with modifications

Ingredients :
280g plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp corn flour
1/2 tsp salt
170g unsalted butter, melted
115g brown sugar
100g sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
180g chocolate chips

20g desiccated coconut



Method :
1. In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, corn flour and salt, then set the bowl aside.

2. In a small bowl, measure out the butter and microwave it until it is just melted (with a few small pieces of butter remaining). Mix the butter until it is all melted down. If you microwave till it is completely dissolved, the liquid will be too hot!

3. In another bowl, measure in both sugars and pour in the butter. Stir this mixture together until it becomes a smooth slurry with no lumps (takes 2 minutes or so of rather powerful stirring!).

4. Mix in first the egg, the egg yoke and then the vanilla and mix well.

5. Pour the dry ingredients a bit at a time into the wet ingredients and mix together with a large spoon until it is combined .

6. Fold in chocolate chips.

7. Take out 1/2 of the dough and put it in another bowl, fold in the desiccated coconut.

8. Cover both the bowl in glad wrap and chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours. The longer the better, can chill overnights or up to 3 days.

9. Pre-heat the oven to 160C fan forced. Remove the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to cool for 10 minutes to soften up (otherwise its far too hard to portion into balls to bake).

10. Scoop one tablespoon of dough and roll into balls.

11. Place the cookie balls onto a lined baking sheet and ensure there is enough space between them.

12. Bake the cookies for 12-15 mins.

13. Remove the cookies out from oven and leave them on the baking sheet for a few minutes (5-10) to cool before transferring them to a wire rack.

14. Store the cookies in air-tight container.



Verdict?
The cookies are crispy at outside and chewy at inside, nice to eat, although they are not my best cookies :p. But my kids love the cookies, they can non-stop eating them. The sweetness of the cookies are alright for us, not those overly sweet type.
