MY OTHER RECIPES


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.

Divine.

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.
