Lemon Coconut White Chocolate Chunk Cookies are moist and delicious summertime or anytime cookie! Make a batch of these delightful cookies and watch the whole family smile with each bite. I love this flavor combination- coconut with a hint of lemon and chunks of white chocolate chunks all wrapped up in a cookie. It’s pretty darn close to heavenly, if you ask me! They’ll make everyday bright and sunny no matter what Mother Nature decides to send your way.
We’ve had so much rain this past week and even some snow again on the mountains- I’m happy to be seeing sunshine today. I’m so not complaining at all- we’ve needed the moisture really badly this year, we had such a mild winter that we’ll gladly take every drop Mother Nature wants to send our way! But with all this sunshine I just couldn’t help but bake up a batch of my Lemon Coconut White Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
