1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 lemon, zest & juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar, until light and fluffy.
Mix in lemon juice, zest, egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine flour,
coconut, baking soda, and salt. Add in the flour mixture gradually,
until all is combined.
Chill the dough for a few hours, or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a food processor, pulse together 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup coconut.
Pour into a small, shallow bowl. Form the dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and
coat with the sugar/coconut. Space the cookies out on the cookie sheet
and bake for approximately 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool and enjoy!
