Coconut sugar comes from the sap of the coconut palm tree. It's plant-based, minimally processed, & one of the most sustainable sugars.
What is Coconut Sugar?
Cream together butter & coconut sugar until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.
Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.
Gradually mix in flour mixture until just combined (taking care not to over-mix).
Place remaining coconut sugar in small bowl. Form balls with 1 ½ Tbsp of dough at a time. Roll balls in sugar.
Place cookie dough balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Use a drinking glass or the palm of your hand to gently flatten the dough balls a bit.
Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes until cookies are just turning golden on the bottom, but are still soft.
Let cool on pan for a couple minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
Take a bite and enjoy the caramel-like nutty flavor coconut sugar brings to traditional sugar cookies.
