    Chewy Coconut Cookies Chewy Coconut Cookies

    Loaded with coconut and butter, these chewy cookies are bound to become family favorites.

    Prep: 1 hr - Bake: 9 min

    1 cup LAND O LAKES® Soft Baking Butter with Canola Oil
    3/4 cup sugar
    3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
    30 red or green candied cherries, halved

    Heat oven to 350°F. Combine Soft Baking Butter with Canola Oil, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until well mixed. Stir in coconut by hand.

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Press 1 cherry half onto center of each cookie. Bake for 9 to 13 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove from cookie sheets.

    TIP: Proper storing keeps cookies at their best. If you will not be eating your cookies within three days, freeze them. Make sure the cookies are completely cool before placing them in storage containers. Otherwise, they're likely to stick together. Keep soft or chewy cookies separate from crisp ones.

    Makes 5 dozen cookies
