Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Beat shortening and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, vanilla and coconut extract; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
Bake 11 to 13 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
These delicious cookies can be baked ahead of time. Cool completely, then wrap in plastic wrap. Place in airtight container or freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. Freeze up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
Prepare dough as directed, substituting softened butter or margarine for the shortening. Refrigerate 30 min. before baking as directed.
Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.
