  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ⅓ cups flaked coconut


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.

  3. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in flour mixture, then stir in coconut until well combined.

  4. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, about 3 inches apart.
