Coconut Balls
Servings: 40 Prep 10 mins Bake 350°F 18 mins


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 2/3 cups sweetened flake coconut

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 2 large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In medium-size bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, egg yolks, rum extract and salt on medium speed until creamy and smooth, about 2 minutes. On low speed, gradually beat in flour just until blended and soft dough forms.

3. Spread coconut onto a plate. Drop 1 level tablespoon dough at a time onto plate; roll to evenly coat with coconut, forming balls. Place 1 inch apart onto prepared baking sheets.

4. Bake in 350 degrees F oven 18 minutes or until coconut is golden. Transfer cookies to wire rack; let cool completely.
