"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."

  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.

Holy moly! This is my new favorite cookie. So very delicious and easy. I substituted bitter b/c. I didn't have veg. Shortening. They turned out great. Thanks for sharing!

very good cookie, simple and easy to make. i put a 1/4 of a maraschino cherry on the top of each.

Amazing. As others, I cut down on the sugar and I used a cube of margarine instead of the shortening but they were great. The only thing I didn't like was NOT being able to stay out of them.
