I make these for Victor’s mom. She loves coconut!
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups shredded coconut, chopped in processor
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp coconut extract
- 2 cups minced shredded coconut for rolling cookies
Preheat oven to 350°.
Whisk together flour, coconut, baking powder, and salt.
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla, and coconut extract. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Using a 1 tbsp scoop, form into balls and roll in coconut.
Place on cookie sheets and bake for 14 minutes, rotating pans halfway through.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
