Can't stop baking!!

I can't help myself these days. I am constantly wanting to bake now that it isn't blazing hot outside. Plus, Riley thinks it's fun to help me and it's a good thing to do to occupy our time while Annie's napping. Plus, I'm a sucker for baked goods; candy isn't really a temptation to me, but I can't get enough when it come to homemade muffins, breads, cookies, etc. Anyway, I tried these cookies out yesterday to have for our FHE treat and I couldn't stop eating them! They are heavenly! I had to make a plate to give away to someone because I seriously could have eaten all two dozen in about 10 minutes.

I got the recipe from my friend's blog (Natalie Gardiner). I made up an egg substitute since I ran out of eggs and it worked fine! Also, Riley and Ryan both loved them even though there was quite a bit of coconut and I didn't know if it would be a turn off.

Here's what I copied and pasted from her blog:



1 1/4 c all purpose flour

1/2 t baking soda

1/4 t salt

1/2 c butter

1/2 c packed brown sugar

1/2 c white sugar

1 egg

1/2 t vanilla extract

1 1/3 c flaked coconut


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually blend in flour mixture. Mix in coconut.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Dont cook too long though or your cookies will be crisp instead of chewy. And believe me, YOU WANT CHEWY!

Cool on wire racks, or if you are me, just eat immediately!
