Chewy Crisp Coconut Cookies


1 c. all-purpose flour

How to make Chewy Crisp Coconut Cookies

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, sift together 1 c. all-purpose flour, ½ tsp. baking soda, ½ tsp. baking powder, and a pinch of salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together ½ c. softened butter (that's 1 stick of butter for the measurementally challenged) and ½ c. each of granulated and brown sugars. Beat in 1 large egg and 1 tsp. vanilla.

Mix flour mixture into butter/sugar mixture, then mix in 1½ c. flaked coconut.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet (there's enough butter in the dough) and bake for 8-10 minutes until cookies are light brown and edges are toasted.

Cool on racks, wrap them up, and give those b**ches away.

    Looks delicious! Wonder if it will have the same outcome if I used 2 egg whites instead of the whole egg?

    you know, i doubt it would have too much effect to use only egg whites since it DOES have 1/2 c butter!
