This is the third recipe in the trio I posted to Face Book the other day. I loved these, but I would really doctor them the way I did in my notes. It made for very coconut-y flavored cookies. My friend Terry made these for a church function and they didn’t quite get the raves that the orange drop cookies did.
Coconut Mounds Cookies
1/2 C. butter, softened
1 C. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 C. sweetened flake coconut
Blend together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture; fold in coconut. Drop by heaping teaspoonsful onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, until very lightly golden. Makes about 3 dozen.
Stacey’s Notes: I ended up using baking SODA by mistake, but these still turned out excellent. The flavor is fantastic. I also added 1/2 tsp. coconut extract and 1/2 tsp. of butter extract to the dough, as well as an extra cup of coconut. These are a definite winner! I think they would be really good drizzled with some melted dark chocolate as well.
