GRANNY'S SOFT COCONUT SUGAR COOKIES

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix the butter, sugar, coconut, vanilla, and egg together in a mixing bowl.  Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of the dough into balls and place on ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart.  Flatten the cookies to 2-inch circle size with the bottom of a glass that's been dipped in sugar.  Bake at 350 degrees until the cookies are set, probably 7 to 9 minutes.  Cookies will be pale just very lightly browned.  Remove from cookie sheets, cool, and store in a tightly covered container.

Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
