Get started!



3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg (yolk only)

1 tablespoon milk

2 teaspoons almond extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 (14-ounce) package sweetened flaked coconut


2 cups real semi-sweet chocolate chips

(2 tablespoons) shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine sugar, butter and cream cheese in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg yolk, milk and almond extract; 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.

  2. STEP 2

    Chop reserved coconut. Place into bowl; set aside. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine chocolate chips and shortening in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, 60-75 seconds or until chocolate is melted.

  6. STEP 6

    Dip bottoms of cookies into chocolate, scraping excess against edge of bowl. Return to parchment paper; let stand until chocolate is set.

Tip #1

- If chocolate begins to thicken, reheat in microwave 15-20 seconds.

Tip #2

- Instead of dipping cookie bottoms in chocolate, drizzle chocolate over tops of cookies.
