85g butter, melted and cooled
85g cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg + 1 large yolk
150g soft brown sugar
60g dessicated coconut
285g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
0.75 tsp bicarbonate of soda
200g white chocolate chips
Set the oven to 180 C/160 C fan and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
Whisk together the cooled melted butter with the cream cheese and vanilla extract. Mix in the egg and yolk followed by the sugar then the coconut.
Sift in the flour, baking poweder and bicarbonate of soda. Fold in until just combined followed by the chocolate chips, reserving a few for the top of the cookies if you wish. Chill the dough for a short while if it is very soft.
Place balls of dough on the bakng sheet leaving space in between them. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 mins depending on how crisp you like your cookies. Remove from the oven and leave in the tray for a few mins. Press each one slightly to flatten and press any reserved chocolate chips into the top.
When the cookies have firmed up enough, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
