Slice and Bake Butter Pecan Coconut Cookies

The EASIEST slice 'n' bake cookies you'll make this holiday season! These butter pecan coconut cookies are soft, buttery, and absolutely impossible to stop eating.
Prep Time 2 hours
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted pecans

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Fold in flour, coconut, baking powder, salt, and toasted pecans until a soft dough forms. Divide dough into two parts and form each portion into a 2-in wide log about 6-8 in long. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least 2 hours or up to 4 days. (dough may also be frozen up to 1 month)
  • Once dough is completely firm remove from refrigerator and slice into 1-in thick circles. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake cookies at 350F 8-9 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Cool cookies on pan 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
