From the kitchen ofOne Perfect Bite...I was very busy today, but earlier this week I promised the Silver Fox I'd make him cookies before the week was over. I found these almost effortless cookies at allrecipes.com, and because I had all the ingredients on hand, I decided to try them today. The only change I made to the original recipe was to use coconut instead of vanilla extract. I also had to add some additional time to their recommendation for baking. I've altered the recipe below to reflect the changes I made. If you like very sweet cookies, you will enjoy these. They are over the top for my palate, but the Silver Fox was in a sugar induced trance and sang their praises. This is a chewy moist cookie that I suspect will keep well if stored in an airtight container. If you have a demanding sweet tooth do give this recipe a try. Here is how the cookies are made.

1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1-1/3 cups flaked coconut
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2) Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3) In a medium bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and coconut extract until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in flour mixture, then mix in coconut. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
