Ingredients

Cookie

2/3 cup sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

48 jelly beans

Glaze

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

5 to 6 teaspoons milk

1 1/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut

Food color, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all cookie ingredients except flour and jelly beans in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in flour until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 jelly bean in center of each ball making sure candy is covered with dough. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine powdered sugar and enough milk for desired glazing consistency in bowl; stir until smooth. Tint coconut with food color, if desired. Dip tops of cookies in glaze; sprinkle with coconut.

Tip #1

To tint coconut, divide coconut evenly among desired number of small bowls. Add 1 to 2 drops of one food color to each bowl. Mix with fork until color is evenly distributed.
