This cookie was eaten on the podcast in episode 009 – Link


  • 125 grams butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 100 grams dark chocolate, broken into pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F)
  2. Grease and flour a baking tray, or use parchment.
  3. In a large bowl, soften butter in the microwave and then beat the sugar into it, either with an electric mixer or by hand.
  4. Add the egg and orange juice and beat the mixture well.
  5. Add the coconut, flour, baking powder and chocolate. The mixture will be quite wet, so scoop up teaspoonfuls and drop them onto a tray, with enough space for them to spread out a bit.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, then take them out and let them sit on the tray for a couple of minutes before you move them onto a rack to cool.
