Preheat oven to 350º
Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Combine, then add coconut and combine.
In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, lime zest, and cream cheese until combined.
Add melted butter to sugar and cream cheese and mix to combine.
Add milk, oil, egg, lime juice, and vanilla to sugar mixture and mix to combine.
Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix until combined.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, place about 1½ tbsp of dough on a cookie tray, about 3½ inches apart; these cookies will spread quite a bit to about 3 inches in diameter.
With the bottom of a glass or measuring cup, flatten the cookie dough to about ¼ inch. NOTE: The thicker the cookie, the chewier it will be.
Bake at 350 degrees for 11-12 minutes or until the edges just turn golden brown.
