Seasons Eatings, Orange Snowballs

For those of you who are wondering where meatless Monday is, I have postponed Meatless Monday until January. I will be posting yummy holiday foods and treats instead ( most are desserts,so meatless anyway). Today lets make Orange Coconut Snowballs.note:this recipe does require refrigeration prior to baking.

What You Need

2 1/4 Cups flour

1 1/4 Cups coconut flakes

2 Sticks butter (softened)

2 1/2 Cups powdered sugar( sifted)

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla

3/4 tsp Coconut extract

1 1/2 Tbsp orange zest (orange part only)

1/2 tsp salt

2 Baking sheets

Electric Mixer

Mixing Bowl

Parchment paper

Melon Baller

Before You Start:  Preheat oven to 350. Toast coconut (place on baking sheet and spread out evenly, cook for about 10 minutes, until golden, watch it closely it will burn)

Lets Make It! In a mixing bowl beat butter on medium high with an electric mixer until smooth, add vanilla and coconut extract and continue mixing. Slowly add 1 1/4 cups of powdered sugar and blend well. Add flour, orange zest, and salt and continue mixing. Remove mixer and stir in coconut with a spoon. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.  Let dough rest on the counter for a few minutes to allow softening slightly.  Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a melon baller, or a tablespoon, get one level scoop (tablespoon) of dough for each cookie. Roll dough into balls with your hands an place on prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Cool on sheets for 5 minutes and roll hot cookies in remaining powdered sugar. Cool and roll in powdered sugar again. Store in airtight container.

Makes about 24

    Now if you could just figure out a way to keep the coconut from getting stuck in my teeth. I hate when that happens.
