Total Time


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

5 to 7 drops red and/or green food color, if desired

24 ounces (9 cups) sweetened flaked coconut

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar and salt in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs, almond flavoring and food color, if desired; continue beating until well mixed. Stir in coconut with wooden spoon until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough, by rounded tablespoonfuls or cookie scoop, onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 17-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Tip #1

To measure coconut, place into large bowl; separate lumps with hands or fork. Place coconut into measuring cups. Do not pack down.

Tip #2

If unopened, canned coconut can be stored at room temperature for up to 18 months. Flaked or shredded coconut in plastic bags can be stored up to 6 months. Refrigerate both after opening up to 4 weeks.
