Coconut Cookies- Chewy

My kids love this cookie and so do I. They are chewy and sweet.

  •  2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)
Cream together the butter and the sugars until fluffy on medium high speed. 
Add eggs in one at a time combining between additions. 
Add the vanilla
Combine the dry ingredients.
Reduce mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients all at once. Beat on low just until combined. Don't overbeat or the cookies will be tough.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden. Remove from oven and cool.
These freeze well.
