Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Lemongrass — To release its flavor, finely chop the lemongrass and lightly crush it with the back of a knife before adding it to the dough.
  • Ginger — Use fresh ginger for the best flavor. Grate it finely using a microplane or a grater.
  • Coconut oil — Make sure the coconut oil is melted and cooled before adding it to the dough. This will prevent it from solidifying and creating lumps.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra burst of Thai flavor, sprinkle some shredded coconut on top of the cookies before baking.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the dough.
  • To achieve a chewier texture, refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes before baking.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips, such as white chocolate or milk chocolate, to customize the flavor.
  • Serve these cookies warm with a scoop of coconut ice cream for a delightful Thai-inspired dessert.
