Coconut chocolate chip cookies

Yesterday I invited a couple of friends over for a summer gathering. I was hoping for better weather so we could sit outside, but Scandinavian summers are what they are. However, I and Sam had picked up some wild flowers, lit some candles and opened the windows, so the summer breeze could be felt inside, too. 😉 For mains I made a quinoa salad with peaches, feta cheese and pommegranate, put together a cheese platter for starters and as a dessert I whipped together these lovely chocolate chip cookies with coconut. The recipe I found on Norwegian blogger matpaabordet. They were the bomb! 😉

Melt 150g chocolate in the microwave/over a pot of boiling water, without letting it touch the water.

Mix sugar and butter in the kitchen machine. Add the eggs, one at a time and mix well. Add the meltet chocolate and the vanilla extract. Mix the flour and baking powder in the dough. Add the coconut shreds and the rest of the chopped chocolate (100g).

Use an ice-cream spoon to form the cookies and bake them on grease-proof paper for 10-12 minutes in the oven (180 C). Let them rest a couple of minutes on the tray before arranging them on a platter. 😉
