Similar to a macaroon, these buttery coconut cookies are sure to become a holiday family favorite.
Combine sugar, butter and cream cheese in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg yolk, milk and almond flavoring; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed. Reserve 1 cup coconut; set aside. Stir in remaining coconut until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.
Chop reserved coconut. Place into bowl; set aside. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls. Roll balls in chopped coconut, pressing coconut firmly onto cookies. Place cookies onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes or until tops just begin to brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; move entire sheet of parchment to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine chocolate chips and shortening in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, 60-75 seconds or until chocolate is melted.
Dip bottoms of cookies into chocolate, scraping excess against edge of bowl. Return to parchment paper; let stand until chocolate is set.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
