Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add coconut and stir until mixed.
In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, lime zest, and cream cheese until combined.
Add melted butter to sugar and cream cheese mixture & stir 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, mixing until combined.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, place about 1½ tablespoons 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 flat measuring cup, flatten the cookie dough to about ¼ inch thick. NOTE: The thicker the cookie, the chewier it will be.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-12 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.
