DIRECTIONS

  • In large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening, and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs one at a time, mixing well.
  • Gradually add water and vanilla.
  • Sift together dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt), and add to batter.
  • Fold in coconut, then cover and refrigerate dough for at least 3 hours; this is a very sticky dough.
  • Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper (or greased).
  • Flatten dough using a fork, the back of a metal spoon, or your fingertips--this dough is very sticky--dip the fork, spoon, or fingertips in a bit of flour before you flatten each cookie.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack.
  • Store in airtight container at room temperature, or freeze for future enjoyment!
