Lemon Coconut Sugar Cookies
sugar, plus extra for rolling the cookies in
cream cheese, cut into small pieces
large egg, at room temperature
+ 1 teaspoon whole milk
Preheat oven to 350 (F).
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together in a medium-sized bowl.
In a large bowl add the sugar and lemon zest, and rub together until fragrant.
Add the cream cheese to the bowl, then pour the warm butter over it and whisk to combine. It will be slightly lumpy; that's ok.
Whisk in coconut oil, mix well, then add the egg, milk and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
Add flour mixture and mix with a scraper spatula until dough forms.
Make two-tablespoon sized balls with the dough, rolling each ball gently in your hands for a nice round shape.
Pour about a 1/4 cup of sugar in a shallow bowl and gently roll each ball of dough in it, before placing on baking sheet.
Once they are on the baking sheets, flatten each cookie gently with the palm of your hand. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of each one cookie.
Bake 11-13 minutes, until edges are just set. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
