“Sweet coconut cookies everyone will LOVE! It does not make many cookies so if you have a hankering for them, it's best to double the batch.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream together the sugar, vegetable shortening, egg, and vanilla extract in a bowl until light and fluffy. Sift 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of flour together with the baking powder and salt in a bowl, and stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture; mix in the coconut until thoroughly combined. Drop the dough by teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until very lightly browned, about 10 minutes; allow cookies to cool on sheets for about 1 minute before removing to finish cooling on baking racks.

Was trying to find an easy recipe to make for a tailgate and came across this one. I doubled the recipe right off the bat. Cookies turned out very well and were very tasty - soft, but also chewy, especially the next day. This is a keeper recipe for me.

These cookies are good! I tend to use half butter and half shortening for my cookies, and I did so for this recipe as well. I also cut back the sugar by 1/8 cup, as I was using sweetened coconut. (use 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons). Very delicious!

I did not have enough coconut, so I used half a cup of coconut and half a cup of chopped dates. The cookies are wonderful. We will eat them up in no time!! Very sweet, just like the name says.
