Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies

This is actually last week's recipe, but I'm just now getting around to typing this up...
I got this recipe off of another blog.  The writer was going on and on about how amazing they are and I got sucked in by all the hype.  They are indeed good, but not the mind-blowing experience that I was expecting.  Sometimes I think that some food blog writers might sensationalize a little just to make their blog seem all amazing and sparkly.  That's just my take on it.  At any rate, here's the recipe.  It's a good cookie for summer, you know, since it's fruity.

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest of one large lime, finely minced
3 tbsp lime juice
½ cup unsweetened toasted coconut
1/2 cup sugar for rolling cookies
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy.
4. Beat in egg, vanilla extract, lime juice and lime zest.
5. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients and toasted coconut.
6. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in sugar. Place on lined cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
7. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
8. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

And the finished product!
