Coconut Dreams



Coconut Dreams

When I made these I should have made a double batch.  They are so, so good.  I have been making all kinds of cookies for my husbands model train get-together, so I hope I have enough this time with all the other cookies I’m baking.  They are a slice and bake cookie so they are really easy also.

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (5-ounces)
  • 1 cup flaked coconut

In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.  Add sugar and baking soda.  Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.  Beat in egg yolk.  Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer; stir in any remaining flour and coconut.  Shape into a 10-inch long log.  Wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper.  Chill in refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

Using a sharp knife, cut log into 1/4-inch thick slices.  Place 1-inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm.  Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute; transfer to wire racks; cool.

Makes 30 to 36 cookies.
