 1/2 cup butter
 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
 1/2 cup white sugar

 Toast coconut.  Be careful not to burn.    

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.) Combine  flour, baking soda, and salt.
Cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then mix in the coconut. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet lined with parchment.  Flatten  slightly with a glass dipped in sugar.   

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes  or until just starting to colour.  Cookies should not brown. Cool on wire racks.
