Celadon's Coconut Cookies

My roommate made the most incredible coconut cookies last week and these are definitely one of my top four favorite cookies! In no special order my top four favorite cookies are: Levain Bakery, Ben's Cookies in London, Andy's White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut and now, Celadon's Coconut Cookies. These coconut cookies were perfectly chewy and moist and tasted great with milk! She found this recipe by Rachel Ray and adapted it to make these perfect cookies.. Enjoy!

Celadon's Coconut Cookies
(Makes 36 cookies)

1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups coconut chips

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar at medium-high speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture on low speed. Stir in the coconut chips.
3. Place rounded teaspoons of dough about an inch apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake until the edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on a rack.
