This is the recipe from R’s “big grandma” for her coconut cookies. They are Pappa’s favorites.
2 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 c sugar
1 c packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 entire package of shredded coconut.
Beat butter, the sugars, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each. Gradually beat in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the coconut.
Cook on ungreased cookie pan at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes, depending on how brown you like them. Cool for two minutes.
These freeze well in airtight containers.
