Lime Chocolate Chunk Cookies

A tropical take on a traditional cookie

Lime Chocolate Chunk Cookies

When I first saw this Dark Chocolate Chunk Coconut Key Lime Pound Cake on Baker by Nature I knew I had to try it out.  What could be better than chocolate, coconut and lime? Not much. Although I haven’t had a chance to try this loaf, I recreated some of the flavors in this amazing cookie.

This cookie is based off of my Sugar Cookie recipe I shared back in October. It’s a simple dough that combines margarine/butter substitute and oil to create a super rich and buttery cookie.

This recipe has never failed me so I hope you give it a try. The cookies are large and gorgeous with unique crackles.
