Pecan and Coconut Cookies

Pecan and Coconut Cookies

Toast the pecan pieces and coconut flakes and set aside on a plate to cool completely.

Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, then scrape down the sides.

Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine.

Add the flour and leavens and mix until partially combined, but some flour still remains.

Add the cooled, toasted pecans and coconut and fold it in by hand, also folding in the remaining flour.

Scoop the dough flush into a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop.

Drop each scoop onto a cookie sheet and gently press down to flatten slightly.

Top with pieces of un toasted coconut and pecans, then bake and cool.
