  • 220 grams butter, room temperature
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 140 grams confectioners sugar
  • 400 grams flour
  • pinch of salt
  • zest of one lemon and orange
  • 100 grams chocolate
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • shredded coconut


  • Mix together butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add the egg yolks, orange and lemon zest. Mix for another minute and then add the flour and salt.
    Shape the dough into about 1 tablespoon size balls and ever so slightly flatten them before putting on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
    Bake on 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until they are just slightly beginning to brown.
    While the cookies are cooling melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments. Mix the chocolate with heavy cream.
    Take your shredded coconut and pulse it in the processor a few times to get it to be slightly finer crumb.
    Once the cookies are fully cooled dip them into the chocolate and then roll them into the coconut. I refrigerate them for half an hour to help set the chocolate but later like them best at room temperature.
