Island Cookies

These cookies were inspired by circumstance. We are in the midst of re-watching all the episodes of LOST to date-starting with the Season 1 Premiere. Every night, every day, every spare minute, particulary utilizing weekend timeoff hours. The past two weekends have been comprised of Lost Marathons, 12+ hours/day of LOST Mania. By end of day today we will be on Season 2, Episode 15: Maternity Leave.

15 days until the final season premiere on February 2, 2010 8/7c; only 64 episodes to catch up-4 per day.

It’s going to be aweeeeeeesome!

All the goodies in these cookies originate from an island source, coconut, pecans, chocolate, maybe the island itself… They have everything a good cookie should. They are cripsy, crunchy and the sweetness of the coconut resonates and compliments the chocolate and the pecans. Plus, they are LOST themed.

Can I just add: Shun the Non-believer…

  1. Coconut, pecans and chocolate together is just about the best combination EVER! Wait, there's sweetened condensed milk, too?! I'd happily be stranded on a 'desserted' island if I had these for provisions. Happy watching!

  2. I have got to try these! They look absolutely perfect!

    I just started watching Lost from the pilot and am on season 3. I started a couple of weeks ago and better hurry up. I had never seen a single episode before, but for some reason the commercials for the final season made me want to watch. Glad you were inspired to give us all something great! 🙂

  3. My dad is big fan of LOST also and eating these cookies while watching LOST would be a perfect start to the season, even if it's the last one! Only thing is that he's allergic to coconut, so I might try to use dried mango for his batch, but for me I'm all about the coconut! Thanks for inspiring me to make that night a yummy one!

  4. Those cookies are filled with yumminess! I'm assuming the condensed milk is sweetened condensed and not evaporated. Am I assuming correctly?
    Have a delicious time watching Lost.
