I had one of these cookies at Paradise Bakery, and when I got home I started working on my own version!

Funny story... when making the dough it was dry and a lot of coconut and I thought this may be a cookie fail. Oh boy, was I pleasantly surprised! The coconut bakes and gets crispy on the outside while the inside is gooey and moist. These cookies don't spread much, so place the cookie how you want it to bake. This cookie is a coconut lovers dream! The Test Kitchen
