yep. they are delicious, easy and chewy!!

coconut cookies

Ingredients

* 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 1 egg
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.) Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then mix in the coconut. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly toasted. Cool on wire racks.

i usually just use brown sugar instead of white

I would have to make the coconut cookies coconutless. I don't know why, but I've never liked coconut. Not even the flavor in a drink.

I've had this for years, but it used to only happen when I would sit for long periods, mostly while driving for a long time.

are you a coconut cream pie person then too? i'm a banana cream pie lover. i hate it though because the coconut cream pie and banana cream pies all look the same until you get a slice. i like coconut cream pie, but i'm always a little sad that it isn't banana cream pie. okay, now i'm just rambling

I have no idea what it is. I just hope it's not my appendix or something that would be dangerous to my baby if it got out of hand. It's really annoying though. Makes me catch my breath. I guess I'll have to ask my OB what he thinks about it.

I don't like coconut either... but I could probably forget that if it were in an alcoholic beverage!! LOL Biggrin On the wine topic, I can't drink it, I tend to 'forget' things because of wine... so I steer clear now... Blum 3

Anna, maybe talk to your Dr... I wouldn't have the slightest idea what it might be, but maybe it's something that is fixable and then you wouldn't have to deal w it any longer...

I think I'm getting old... I sit on the couch with my legs tucked underneath me and in like 5mins my knees are aching so badly I want to cry... Maybe I need bionic knees... hmmmm....
