Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Cups flour
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 2 Cups butter, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda

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.
