Sesame coconut butter cookies are everything you crave in a butter cookie but with an added twist of coconut, almonds, and sesame seeds. Buttery sweet with a perfectly crisp edge.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups butter (4 sticks), at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups flaked coconut (I used sweetened coconut)
  • 1 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in vanilla and salt. Add flour gradually by 1 cupful to the creamed mixture. With a wooden spoon, stir in the coconut, sesame seeds, and almonds. I also used my hands to thoroughly incorporate everything well.
  2. Divide the dough into three 10-inch rolls, wrapping each roll in plastic wrap. ***I found the easiest way to do this is to divide the dough into thirds inside your mixing bowl and transfer each third onto the plastic wrap and as you wrap the dough in plastic wrap, use your hands to form it into a 10-inch roll.***
  3. Chill the dough for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. You can also prep the dough up to one day in advance and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 300F.
  5. Unwrap the dough and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place each slice 1-inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for couple minutes before removing to wire rack.
