Crackly Coconut Sugar Cookies

New Cookie!  Lately I have been on the hunt for bakery looking cookies.  I think this one is that pretty!   I adapted it  from Hiving Out's sugar cookie recipe.  I added way more sugar (duh) and some fine grounded coconut.
I also reduced the baking time cuz my oven is always quicker than what recipes call for. 
Crackly Coconut Sugar Cookies
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup super fine coconut (food processor)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar (sanding or granulated) for rolling cookies
1. Heat the oven to 350*F and arrange a rack in the middle. Combine butter and granulated sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and mix on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl sides and bottom. Add yolks, vanilla, and salt and beat until smooth, about 30 seconds.
2. Add coconut. flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar and mix on low speed until dough comes together. Scoop dough by rounded tablespoons and roll between your hands until smooth.
3. Roll dough in sanding or granulated sugar to coat and place on parchment-paper-lined baking sheets. Bake cookies until they are golden brown around the edges but still soft in the center, about 13 minutes. Immediately transfer to a rack to cool completely.
Makes about 3 dozen good size cookies.  Yum Yum.
