White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

White Chocolate Coconut Cookies

1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup shredded coconut flakes

Preheat oven to 350

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy with a hand held electric mixer. Beat in the egg. Add the baking powder, baking soda, flour and salt, beat until just combined. Fold in the oats, vanilla extract and shredded coconut flakes.

Form walnut sized balls of the mixture and drop onto parchment paper-lined sheet pans. Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes until the bottom of the cookies are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely.

8 ozs. white chocolate, melted

When the cookies are cool, dip them halfway into the melted white chocolate. Let them dry completely.

Variation- after dipping them into white chocolate, then dip into 3/4 cup of toasted shredded coconut flakes.
