“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.” - by MissWriteForLife
Original recipe yields 20 cookies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
- 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.
- 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.
