Warning: Synonymous to the diamond which also means “I tame”; this cookie is highly decadent & may only take one to tame your chocolate madness!

Mise En Place:

Makes about 2 Dozen

  • Godiva Chocolate Chips with *52% Cocoa.
  • Organic Unsweetened Coconut Flakes 4 oz.
  • Kosher Coarse Salt (for finish)
  • (Swans) Cake Flour 10 oz.
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • Unsalted Butter 5 oz.
  • Granulated Sugar 4 oz.
  • Light Brown Sugar 4 oz.
  • Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
  • Baking Soda 5/8 tsp or .12 oz.
  • Kosher Salt *3/4 tsp if finishing.

Suggested Equipment: Standmixer

Steps:

Line Cookie Sheets with Parchment Paper.

All ingredients at Room Temperature: Flour, Eggs & Butter


 

Step 1: Cream together Butter, granulated & brown sugars, and the vanilla extract until there’s a smooth consistency.

Step 2: Add Eggs

Step 3: In a separate mixing bowl add the grounded salt, and  baking soda to cake flour, thoroughly stir the dry content until well blended. Sift twice.

Step 4: *Heat oven to 375. Place middle rack in position

Step 5: Next combine the dry ingredients to butter mixture.  Stop & scrape down sides and continue mixing until base dough is formed.

Step 6: Add in coconut flakes until well distributed.

Step 7: After, add the chocolate chips. Again mix until well distributed.

Step 8: Use Step 3 Cookie Scoop or 3/4 amount of an ice cream scoop for size. Spacing 2.5 – 3 inches apart. And last *Lightly Sprinkle with Coarse Salt.

Step 9: Bake for 11 mins or until just lightly golden. The cookie should and will appear “undone”. It will set at cooling.

Step 10: Keep cookies on baking sheets for 5-7 mins then transfer to a cooling rack. This will avoid cooling too soon, resulting in a hard crispy base.

Step 11: When cookies have cooled, store in an airtight container.

Note about Sodium: 

Eliminate this step if there are sodium restrictions to consider. Or choose and distinguish 1 sheet for salted & one for unsalted. Cool and store separately. You will notice after baking, they will look slightly different.

Created with a spontaneous combustion of chocolate wishes.

Enjoy!
