Coconut Cookies

Coconut Cookies

Cream together:
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar

Add and mix well:
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 t. coconut extract

Mix together & add to creamed mixture blending:
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Mix or stir in:
2 1/4 c. shredded coconut

Bake at 375* for 12 minutes or just lightly browned. Bake time is determined by your size of cookie. I like these just lightly browned and thus soft and chewy. On the other hand, you need to get them somewhat browned to bring out the butter flavor. Rambling :)
