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
