Coconut Cookies

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.
