Butter Coconut Cookies


 Butter coconut cookies are fast and easy to prepare. It is sweet and buttery with wonderful taste and flavor of coconut which you will surely enjoy. It looked rather simple and plain, so I gave it a touch of chocolate..you can use any kind of frosting you like.

Ingredients
 All purpose flour- 2 cups
Coconut flakes- 3/4 cup 
Unsalted butter- 3/4 cup( one and one half stick)
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Salt- 1/3 tsp
Granulated sugar-  1 cup
Egg  - 1
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp

Combine and shift flour, baking powder and salt and keep aside.
Bring butter to room temperature and in a large mixing bowl  beat butter until creamy and add in sugar and beat with a hand mixer or a stand mixer till soft and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and continue beating. Finally add flour and coconut and ix till incorporated. It will be in the for of a smooth dough.  Cover it and into the refrigerator for two to three hours.
Pre heat oven to 350 degree F and prepare parchment lined baking sheets. When ready for baking take scope sized dough and roll into small balls or use a cookie cutter.( or you can roll into cylinder shape or log shape , cover with plastic and then refrigerate it ). Roll the balls in confectionery sugar.Place in prepared baking sheets with two to three inch gap around each ball.Bake for around seven to eight minutes when you see wedges slightly browned.
