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 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.
