A little bit of lime mixed with Ginger Powder and toasted coconut makes for a
delicious, light and chewy cookie. The Ginger perfectly complements the lime and is cooked in the cookie and sprinkled on the outside. These cookies are easy to make and so refreshingly good, they will be gone in no time!
2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Ginger Powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp lime extract
1 tsp coconut extract
zest from one large lime
juice from one large lime
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup granulated sugar mixed with 1 tsp Ginger Powder
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Toast the coconut in a toaster oven for about 3-4 minutes (watch carefully as it will burn fast). Set aside. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and Ginger. In a medium bowl, blend the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, the extracts, and then the lime zest and lime juice. Add the flour mixture and the coconut and mix until incorporated. Roll the batter into teaspoon size balls and then roll and coat each ball with the sugar-Ginger mixture. Place the balls on the cookie sheet, leaving about an inch between each ball (cookies will spread as they bake). Bake for 8 - 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until just done. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the tops of each cookie with a little of the extra sugar-Ginger mixture. Cool the cookies on a rack.
