Crisp at the edges, wonderfully chewy in the middle, deliciously coconuty throughout...these tasty cookies are the perfect harmony of creamy butter, coconut and sugar. They're sure to delight everyone!
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine butter and sugars. Beat on medium speed with the paddle attachment until smooth and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and coconut extracts, and continue beating. 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. Using a medium-size cookie scoop, or by heaped tablespoonfuls, drop the dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving at least a 2 to 3-inch gap between each mound. Place one baking sheet at a time onto center rack of preheated 350 degree F oven. For soft chewy cookies; bake until centers are very lightly browned, about 7 to 8 minutes. For crisper chewy cookies; bake until centers are golden brown, about 9 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for at least two minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
