Sweet Coconut Snowballs
Yield: 2 dozen Prep 10 mins Bake 350°F 15 mins


  • 1 cup sweetened flake coconut
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons milk

Make It

1. Grind 1/2 cup of the coconut in food processor. Chop remaining coconut and set aside. Add flour, 1/4 cup of the confectioners' sugar and the salt. Pulse to blend. Add butter and vanilla; pulse until dough comes together.

2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place dough balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

3. Bake cookies until firm but tender, 15 minutes. Remove to rack; let cool completely.

4. In small bowl, stir together remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar and enough milk until smooth but still thick. Dip cookies in glaze (about 1/2 teaspoon for each), letting it drip down sides. Dip in chopped coconut and set aside for glaze to dry.
