Introduction: Gluten Free Coconut Cookies

This is a gluten free chewy coconut cookie. The recipe provides instructions for using gluten free AP flour or a GF baking flour mix.

Step 1: BoM

1/2 cup softened unsalted butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 cup GF AP Flour

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups shredded or flaked coconut

*If you get Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, then you can skip the xanthan gum (which can be hard to find and expensive).

Step 2: Dough

In one bowl, mix the butter with the sugars, vanilla, and egg. In a second bowl mix all of the dry ingredients except for the coconut. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet bowl and mix well. Add coconut last.

Step 3: Bake

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are a light-to-medium brown. These are supposed to be somewhat chewy cookies, so don't over-bake. Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire rack.

Looked good enough I made a double batch to work out the size of the dough balls and cooking timing. A wonderful coconut cookie.
