Chewy Coconut Cookie Recipe

Chewy Coconut Cookie Recipe

Recently, I found myself with some extra coconut from a new granola bar recipe I was trying, so I decided to give a coconut cookie recipe a try. The cookies were excellent: chewy, light, and just sweet enough.

The original recipe can be found here.


Makes 2 dozen cookies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate larger bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until its smooth. Add the egg and the vanilla until mixture is fluffy.

Bit by bit, blend in the flour mixture. Add the coconut.

Drop 1 inch round balls of the dough onto a ungreased cookie sheet. Gently press each ball slightly flat. Space cookies 3 inches apart.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until they get slightly golden on the edges. Let cool.
