Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, sugar, and salt into a medium bowl. Add coconut milk, and stir until well combined. Stir in vanilla and shredded coconut. Add butter, and stir until combined. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  • Drop teaspoons of batter onto baking sheets lined with nonstick baking mats, spacing about 3 1/2 inches apart. Using moistened fingers, gently flatten cookies to the size of quarters.

  • Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are flat and edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks; let cool completely. Wipe mats and cool sheets between batches.
