Well I know it's really not summer yet, but after the mild Winter we had, it sure feels like it. :)
These cookies are easy, light and delicious. Did I say easy? And delicious? Yummy coconut too. Heavenly....
Make sure you put the dough in the fridge to let it rest and chill for about 15 minutes after you make it.
Here's the recipe, originally from allrecipes.com.
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar, plus more for dusting
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar until fluffy. Mix in flour and salt until they're just combined. Stir in coconut.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake until just starting to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Roll the warm cookies in confectioners' sugar; let cool completely.
