Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

In a large bowl beat the butter, sugars & honey together until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and continue mixing.

In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat on low to low-medium speed until almost combined. Then beat in the boiling water and coconut.

Drop the cookie dough into small balls (slightly under a tablespoon) on your prepared cookie sheet 3 inches apart.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges are just starting to brown and the tops are beginning to set.

Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 to 10 minutes, then continue cooling on a wire rack.
