Slice & Bake Coconut Cookies (recipe as promised!)

I have been finding so many new recipes on Pinterest.
Yet I never seem to find the TIME to MAKE the recipes!
Well, being Christmas time...and baking season...
I decided it was time to not only make the traditional "stand-bys" but to try a few new things as well.
This one comes from .
As promised by the original blogger, if you enjoy the taste of coconut, you'll love these!
Many people have a thing about the texture of coconut.
They don't like the texture, but like the flavor.
The great thing about these cookies is that you really don't even get the texture of the coconut.
All you get is the wonderful flavor!
So, without further is the promised recipe from Baking Bites.
Slice & Bake Coconut Cookies
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup butter, soft
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
Whisk together flour, paking powder and salt in a small bowl.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar, then add in the egg and vanilla. Beat until light and well combined, then beat in the coconut. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture.
Once all the flour has been mixed in, divide the dough into two parts, shape into logs (2-inches in diameter) and wrap tightly in parchment or wax paper. Freeze for at least 1-2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice cookies off the frozen logs with a sharp knife, making each cookie no more than 1/4-inch thick. Place on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are just lightly browned.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 2 dozen.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
