LEMON COCONUT ICEBOX COOKIES
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 cup toasted coconut
1 cup white sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, (2 sticks). softened
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Using an electric mixer at medium speed beat the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Add the first egg to the creamed mixture and beat well.
Then add the second egg and beat well.
Add the grated lemon rind and the lemon juice to the creamed mixture and beat until well blended.
Add the toasted coconut to the creamed mixture and mix until blended.
Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
Slowly add a portion of the combined dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat until just blended. Then add a second portion of the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat until just blended. Continue in this way until all of the dry ingredients have been added and blended in.
Divide the dough into three equal portions.
Take each third and shape it into a log 12 inches long. Form the log by lightly rolling the dough back and forth on a piece of lightly floured parchment paper or wax paper.
If you plan to bake the cookies right away: Double wrap each log in heavy plastic wrap. Cover and chill until firm, about 4 hours. Follow the Baking Directions below. If you plan to freeze the cookie dough: Wrap each log in a heavy plastic freezer wrap. Tape the ends with freezer tape. Cover and chill until firm, about 2 hours. Follow the Freezing Directions below.
BAKING DIRECTIONS: If the dough has been frozen, defrost it in the refrigerator for 4 hours or more.
Preheat oven to degrees 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap the cookie dough log. Using a sharp knife cut the log into 1/2-inch slices. Rotate the dough log ¼ turn after each cookie is cut. This will help to keep the cookies round. Place each slice 2-inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat this process for the next batch.
Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container.
Makes 7 dozen cookies.
