  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add the dry ingredients all at once and mix for 5 seconds.
  5. Add coconut and white chocolate chips and mix the dough until the flour is incorporated. Do not overmix.
  6. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 2 hour, preferably overnight. You can scoop it out with a 1,5 tablespoon scoop onto a baking sheet and chill. (Chilled cookie dough can be tricky to scoop out.)
  7. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  8. Line a cookie sheet with a parchment paper.
  9. Scoop cookie dough with a 1,5 tablespoon size cookie scoop and place on the sheet.
  10. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes ( 9 minutes was the magic number for me).
  11. Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet. Transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.
