Coconut Ginger Cookies

This recipe is as easy as it gets and involves two of my favorite flavors, coconut and ginger. A little bit crispy and a little bit chewy, these babies are seriously addicting. 


2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
3 tablespoons grated ginger

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In your mixer, beat butter and sugar then add vanilla. Beat until thoroughly combined. Mix in flour, shredded coconut, and grated ginger. Mix until completely combined. Shape dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place 12 balls on an un-greased cooking sheet. With the bottom of a glass cup, gently flatten each of the balls. Stick in oven for about 25-30 minutes. Let cool for about 30-45 minutes.
