Chewy Coconut Cookies

We eat really healthy foods here, growing almost all of what we eat. But we’re not only about the vegetables and fruits, we each have a sweet tooth. I don’t bake like this every week, but when I do, we enjoy it.

Last week, I made a batch of these chewy coconut cookies for the first time. We liked them so much they didn’t last long. Here’s the recipe and I can vouch for these. If you love coconut, you’ll make these more than once.



Chewy Coconut Cookies

1 1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/3 cup flaked coconut


Combine the flour, soda and salt. Set aside.

Cream the butter and both sugars until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until fluffy.

Gradually blend in the flour mixture, and then the coconut.

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Put them about 3 inches apart as these cookies really spread in the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes. Remove them from the sheet right away onto wire racks.
