"I am so glad I found this recipe! These cookies were an instant hit and have become a favorite at our house. They are delicious coconuty cookies, crisp at the edges and perfectly chewy in the middle. Anyone who likes the aroma and taste of coconut is sure to love these buttery, and easy to make cookies. I'm also thinking, if you like a little chocolate with your coconut you could drizzle melted chocolate over the tops. "- Trissa

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine butter and sugars.

Scrape down sides of bowl, and spoon in flour mixture, beating till combined. Add coconut and mix. Transfer dough to a smaller bowl (if necessary), cover and refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

1Baker2Baker 1 year agoI didn't have coconut extract, so I used Rum Yum!!! Out of brown sugar so I made my own with regular sugar and molasses. Rolled them into balls, a bit larger, and chilled them overnight. I got 21 fat cake like cookies. So yummy!!!cookies.

dizolli 1 year agoFantastic. I added ground flax seed and chia seed to trick myself into thinking I was making mine healthier. Giggle. Delicious. And with for a few I melted white chocolate with zest of lime, a dash of salt and teaspoon of water for a not healthy but yummy icing. I love this easy to make cookie.
