Crispy Coconut Cookies


Tips for Cooking This Dish

  1. Use Softened Butter: Ensure the butter is softened to room temperature for easy creaming with the sugars.
  2. Don't Overmix: Mix the dough until the ingredients are just combined to avoid tough cookies.
  3. Watch the Bake Time: Keep an eye on the cookies while baking. They should be golden brown on the edges but still soft in the center when you take them out.
  4. Cooling: Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. This helps them set and firm up.
  5. Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze the dough balls and bake them as needed.
