Island Cookies with coconut and pecans that are inspired by the TV show Lost. Yes, that TV show. The TV show everyone loves, but no one can agree on if the ending was complete garbage, or the perfect ending.
Let’s set the record straight: it was complete garbage. Damon and Carleton promised us for 6 seasons that they weren’t in purgatory, and then ended the show that they were in purgatory. There were so many possible mind bending, fantastical, gripping and dimensional directions they could have gone.
They were just lazy.
So don’t confuse these island inspired coconut and pecan cookies as a tribute to the creators. They are wholeheartedly not a tribute. In fact, on the anniversary of the season finale every year I write them a note on social media to remind them how I remain eternally disappointed in them. It’s a commitment.
Coconut and Pecan Island Cookies
All that withstanding, the inspiration of the potential of the TV show Lost created these amazing coconut and pecan cookies. They are absolutely delicious in all the best ways possible.
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 crispy and crunchy, and the sweetness of the coconut resonates and compliments the chocolate and the pecans.
