Lime in the Coconut Cookie Fudge

Ingredients

  • 1 roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough 
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1 can (14 oz) Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 bag (12 oz) white vanilla baking chips
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

1 _ Heat oven to 350°F. Let cookie dough stand at room temperature 10 minutes to soften.

2 _ Meanwhile, spread 1/2 cup of the coconut in ungreased shallow pan. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. In small bowl, mix toasted coconut and lime zest until well blended; set aside.

3 _ Break up cookie dough and press in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.


4 _ In 1-quart saucepan, cook sweetened condensed milk and butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted and ingredients are thoroughly heated. DO NOT BOIL. Remove from heat; stir in white baking chips until melted. Stir in remaining 1 cup coconut and the vanilla.

5 _ Pour coconut mixture over cookie crust, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with coconut lime mixture; press in lightly. Cool 15 minutes. Refrigerate 1 hour or until topping is firm.
