  • Cream together the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt, and then stir in the coconut and candy.
  • Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the dough and refrigerate until fully chilled, about 2 hours (this step is necessary!).
  • Preheat the oven to 350F; line 3 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat liners.
  • Use a 2-tablespoon-size scoop to drop the cookies into balls and arrange them on the prepared baking sheets (these spread out quite a bit; I bake 8 on a half sheet pan).
  • Bake until golden on the bottom, but still a touch doughy in the center, about 10 to 12 minutes. If cooking more than 1 tray at a time, rotate the trays once halfway through. (Don't over-bake!)
  • Cool and serve.


  • Nutrition information is for 1 cookie.
  • To make these cookies a bit thicker, add an additional 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. Keep the rest of the recipe the same.
  • To bump up the coconut flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon coconut flavor.
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
