Chewy Coconut Lime Cookies

I'm sure I've mentioned before my love for all things lime.  And I'm also sure I've mentioned my love for all things  coconut.  Well you can imagine my dreamy eyed stare when I came across this recipe over at My Happy Place blog.  As you can imagine I had to try these immediately.  I adapted the recipe slightly to fit my tastes and made the most delicious Chewy Coconut Lime Cookies EVER!  A big Thank you to Sophie for sharing such a wonderful recipe.  I hope you give them a try and let me know what you think.  Be sure to stop by My Happy Place and check out all the wonderful recipes Sophie has posted  :)

Here's what you need:
2-3/4 cup flour, all purpose
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1-1/2 cup sugar
1 lg. egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
zest of 3 large limes, approximately 2 - 3 Tablespoons
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice, approximately 3 large limes
1 cup coconut, I use sweetened
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling the cookies in

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

In a bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the butter and  1-1/2 cups sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add egg, vanilla, lime juice, and lime zest and mix until incorporated.
Add coconut and mix until incorporated. 
Next add the flour and mix until incorporated. 
Place 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl and drop cookies, using a medium cookie scoop, into sugar and coat completely then place 2 inches apart on a lined baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Cool cookies on baking sheet for 2- 3 minutes then remove to cooling rack or paper towels to cool completely.
Mmmmmm, Chewy Coconut Cookies with a hint of lime and a light sugar coating.
