These cookies taste like summer to me.
The summer sun has been shining this weekend! I've been for long walks in the countryside, eaten ice cream, worn sun cream, and eaten a loaf of bread with a Mars bar baked into it (yes, apparently that's actually a thing! I may have to recreate it one day).
I've also made these cookies! They are so chewy, so coconut-y, and so delicious. They really are a perfect summer cookie - a little like Anzac Biscuits in their flavouring, with some sweet white chocolate chips thrown in. I took them along to Fight Night at my local gym and everyone I fed them to loved them!

250g (2 cups) plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
150g (2 cups) desiccated coconut
300g (1 1/2 cups) white chocolate chips

Line a couple of baking trays with greaseproof paper.
- Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and baking soda, and add the salt.
- Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet batter until combined.
