I know this is Cake Central - just wondering if it’s ok to post about my current cookie predicament?  I mostly do cakes but am doing some R&D for   cookies too.

If not, I understand - if so, here it is:

The current cookie I’m trying to make come into fruition is made with browned butter, coconut, pecans...either Malibu or Jamaican Dark Rum.  I’ve added lots of freshly grated nutmeg, just can’t seem to get the flavor I want: richness from the butter is there, texture from the coconut and nuts...I want a cookie that imparts a somewhat deep, spiced tone.  Very island-y.  Considering added lemon or lime zest to brighten it.

Any thoughts?

you might want to balance the nutmeg with any one or a combination of these spices -- cinnamon, cayenne and a dit dot of clove-- i would start with those -- i'd use a hot saigon type cinnamon -- could also try -- mace & ginger --

i know you already have rum in there -- but another thought is -- if possible add a spiced coffee

Cut down on the nutmeg and use allspice.

I would replace the nutmeg with ginger.

I agree with Kate, add other sweet spices - love the idea of cinnamon, cayenne and cloves....even nutmeg.
