  • Cookie Sheet
  • parchment paper
  • small bowl
  • Electric Mixer
  • Cooling Rack


  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 large lime finely minced
  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ cup unsweetened toasted coconut
  • ½ cup sugar for rolling cookies


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. If you haven't already toasted your coconut just put a layer of coconut on a cookie sheet and bake it at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes. Watch out. It goes from white to burnt really quick if you aren't watching closely.
  • In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy.
  • Beat in egg, vanilla extract, lime juice and lime zest.
  • Gradually blend in the dry ingredients and toasted coconut.
  • Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in sugar. Place on lined cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. I made mine too big and they ran together. These do spread quite a bit.
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
  • Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.


 I have only made these cookies, in individual cookies. However, if you are looking to make these into a bar, they would work out nicely.
You will need to adjust the cooking time to about 20 minutes, and continue to check them, to be sure they don’t burn, but I am sure they would work great, baking them in a pan.
These would also be delicious with a light glaze on them, whether they are made into bars or cookies.
