These cookies become crisper the second day, so do not overbake them.

  5. Using rubber spatula, fold in flour, butter and vanilla extract.
  6. Fold in toasted coconut last.
  7. Grease large baking sheets.
  8. Drop cookie batter by 1/2 tablespoonsful onto baking sheets about 1 inch apart.
  9. Using oven rack in highest position, bake about 15 to 20 minutes, watching carefully so edges don't burn.
  10. Immediately remove from baking sheets and place on rack to cool.
  11. Repeat with remaining batter.
