Coconut Cream Cookies

When I saw this recipe on the I Want Crazy blog, it was love at first sight. Coconut cream pie is one of my favorite pies! So why not have coconut cream cookies?

I switched out the vanilla extract for coconut extract to boost the flavor even more. These cookies are moist and so loaded with the creamy coconut flavor. If you close your eyes while you eat one, you can almost feel the warm tropical sun on your face. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
