Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup
sugar
3/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 (8-ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon
rum flavoring*, if desired
2 1/4 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon
baking soda
1 cup
plain or toasted sweetened flaked coconut

Glaze

1 1/2 cups
powdered sugar
1/3 cup
orange or apricot marmalade
1 to 2 tablespoons
orange juice
 
Plain or toasted sweetened flaked coconut, if desired
 
*Substitute 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Directions

  1. Combine sugar, butter, cream cheese and rum flavoring in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in coconut. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls; roll each into 2-inch logs. Shape into crescent on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Remove to cooling racks; cool completely.
  3. Combine powdered sugar, marmalade and enough orange juice for desired glazing consistency. Frost cooled cookies with glaze. Sprinkle with coconut, if desired. Let stand about 1 hour until glaze is set.
  4. Store in single layer between sheets of waxed paper in loosely covered container.

Recipe Tips

- Be sure cream cheese and butter are very soft to prevent lumps when mixing.

- To toast coconut, spread coconut in single layer on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350°F., stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from baking sheet. Cool completely.

- Omit the glaze and sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar instead.

I made these last year for a cookie exchange party. Crescents were a HUGE hit, everyone loved them, and took home extras. I added both fresh coconut and toasted. Awesome & delicious!
