Coconut Cookies

Sorry I haven’t had time to post in a while, but I just made these today and they turned out great! If you love coconut they are chewy and sweet and a great alternative to a chocolate chip cookie. If you add chocolate they will taste like a mounds bar cookie but are equally good without the chocolate.

Coconut cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp cardamon
  • 1 1/3 cups flaked unsweetened coconut

Method

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter with sugar. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract.  In a separate bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda, mix and then add to the butter mixture. When well combined add coconut, stirring well.

I like to make these  on the small size,  drop by small teaspoon full and bake for about 6-10 minutes. Keep a eye on these cause they cook relatively quick, you want golden brown bottoms and softer looking tops. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
