Chewy Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies


These were THE PERFECT cookies! They were soft and chewy 
and they tasted very summery- tropical and citrusy!

Chewy Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies
2 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
zest of one large lime, finely minced
3 tbsp. lime juice {freshly squeezed is the best!}
1/2 c. unsweetened toasted coconut
1/2 c. sugar for rolling cookies

 Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or cooking spray.

 In a small bowl, stir dry ingredients.

 Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.

Beat in egg, vanilla, and lime juice and zest. 

Gradually blend in the dry ingredients and toasted coconut.

Roll rounded spoonfuls of dough into balls and roll in sugar.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

I can't wait to share more recipes with y'all this week! I have some YUMMY ones planned out!
I also just found out I'm doing another guest post on an AWESOME food blog... I'll have to figure out what I'm making for that. But I'm super excited to be posting there! If any of my other food bloggin' buddies want to do guest posts, let me know! I'm really trying to get my blog out there!
Thanks girls!
