Easy and delicious Pomegranate Coconut Thumbprint Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle. These thumbprint cookies are perfect for any holiday celebration or cookie exchange, and they pack a punch of pink pomegranate flavor!
Your holiday cookie exchange is right around the corner. What eye-popping, jaw-dropping cookie recipe will you bestow on your friends and coworkers this year?
Can I make a suggestion??
Our pretty pink Pomegranate Coconut Thumbprint Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle are my favorite cookie of the season.
The base of these Pomegranate Coconut Thumbprint Cookies, is light, buttery and chewy with a heavy dose of toasty coconut. The cookie dough is loaded with Land O Lakes® Salted Butter and shredded coconut, so they aren’t quite a coconut macaroon, and they aren’t quite a shortbread cookie.
Thumbprint cookies were always a staple around the holidays growing up, so every year I make a big buttery batch of thumbprint cookie dough and play with flavors.
The addition of coconut in these cookies is a nice touch, providing a chewy consistency and lots of textural appeal.
Not only is there coconut in the cookie dough…
I rolled the thumbprints in coconut as well, so the exterior of each cookie is toasted to perfection.
Once the cookies have baked and cooled, I make a simple creamy pomegranate filling to pipe into the center of each cookie.
The pink pomegranate filling dries enough to stay put, but stays soft and gooey in the center.
Aren’t they gorgeous? And they taste just as good.
You could stop here and serve your lovely little Pomegranate Coconut Thumbprint Cookies as-is.
Yet, if you are a chocolate lover…the next step is for you!
Yep, there we go.
A touch of chocolaty decadence.
Salty-sweet. Buttery. Coconut-y. And tangy, with a burst of pomegranate flavor.
These Pomegranate Coconut Thumbprint Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle will wow your loved ones this season…and will disappear in a flash!
