"This cookie recipe is as simple as they get: 30 minutes after measuring the flour, I had a cookie in-hand. At one bite, I knew I was in love: a caramel-butter flavor with the slightest hint of coconut, crispy on the edges and slightly chewy in the middle, sweet but not overpowering.
A few baking notes: I find that doubling the size of each cookie to 2 teaspoons (leaving the temp, bake time, and everything else the same) helps them stay more ~golden brown~ in the oven — but I'd recommend trying a few cookies at both sizes so you can pick your fave. I also double the vanilla, and a few times, I've mixed in a 10 oz bag of dark chocolate chips along with the coconut." —Natalie Brown
