The clocks have gone back and the nights are drawing in. In our world, that means more time spent cruise shopping with a brews, and that can only mean one thing; you’re going to need biscuits. Royal Caribbean’s Coconut Ranger cookies will do the trick (or treat!)


600g plain flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

500g unsalted butter, softened

500g brown sugar

80g dried coconut, shredded

100ml coconut milk

6 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 175c.

In a bowl, sift together the flour and baking soda.

In another bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until smooth.

Beat in eggs one by one until well blended.

Mix in the coconut milk and vanilla extract.

Fold in dry mixture of flour and baking soda, and then the dried coconut until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

Using an ice-cream scoop if you have one, scoop cookie dough onto a baking tray and shape into a round.

Bake until slightly puffed but barely coloured, about 9-12 minutes.

Pop the kettle on, put your feet up and enjoy!
