Coconut cookies

What you will need:
3 sifted cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp heavy cream
1 2/3 cups lightly packed sweetened flaked coconut

Steps to yummy goodness:
1 )Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare baking sheets.
2 )Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon together into a bowl.

3 )Beat the butter until smooth. Add the brown sugar in 2 additions, beating to incorporate after each addition. Add in the sugar and beat until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla extract and heavy cream. Mix in the coconut. Stir in the flour mixture in two additions, until no traces of flour remain.

4 )Spoon out the dough by rounded tablespoons and form into oval-shaped logs. place the logs of dough 3 inches apart in the lined baking sheets, arranging them 9 to a sheet (although I managed to squeeze in more). Flatten the balls slightly. Then using the tines of a fork, make rows of striated impressions to flatten each ball of dough into a rounded oval.

5 )Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. The bottom of the cookies and the edges will be golden.
