Coconut Butter Cookies

Coconut Butter Cookies:
(recipe from Cooking With Coconut Flour by Bruce Fife

1/2 cup Butter
1 Cup Sugar 
(we used 1/2 cup ZSweet & 1/2 cup Sugar Twin)
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sifted coconut flour
2 cups grated or flaked coconut (we used unsweetened)
***If you are at High Elevation (around 5000 feet) you may need to add more moisture (you can add about a tablespoon of coconut milk).

Mix together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Stir in coconut flour & coconut.  Drop spoon-size mounds 1 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes (we did 15 minutes & flattened the mounds down a little) or until golden brown.  Remove from cookie sheet immediately & cool on wire rack.  Makes about 2 dozen cookies. 

We dipped them in Sugar free dark & milk chocolate combo melted w/just a little bit of coconut oil.
