Christmas Cookie Baking Day Cookies Desserts

Tropical Chewies

December 22, 2017

New to Cookie Baking Day were these Tropical Chewies. We usually bake only two of the same type of cookies from year to year, so it’s always fun to have something new on the menu. These cookies are full of goodies: white chocolate chips, almonds, macadamia nuts, and coconut. If you’re a white chocolate macadamia cookie fan, you’ll love these!

Tropical Chewies

As much as I liked these cookies, they were my least favorite from the entire day. Although in my book, it’s always going to be hard to top Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think I would enjoy these more if there was less stuff. The chips, two kinds of nuts, and coconut was a bit overboard for me. I needed more cookie base. However, I did like the combination of everything, and next time I would lessen the amounts. Not a bad problem to have to make more cookies in the name of research!
