Chewy Coconut Cookies

Just made these tonight so my husband has something good for dessert for his lunches this week. I snuck one to taste test it though....YUM!!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then mix in the coconut.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I used my smallest cookie scoop).

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly toasted. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
