Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Cups flour
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 2 Cups butter, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Cup sweetened flaked coconut

Directions

Combine all ingredients except coconut in large bowl. Beat at low speed with a hand mixer, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in coconut.

Divide dough in half; shape each half into a 12 by 2-inch log. Wrap each log in plastic food wrap; refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut logs into ¼-inch slices. Place 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.

Coconut Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
