The recipe is simple: cream butter and confectionsers sugar, add flour, salt, and shredded sweetened coconut. When incorporating the flour, the dough will seem too dry, but adding the coconut will make it moist and rollable.
I read a comment on the website that these are good with chocolate- I added mini chocolate chips to half the batter- it really does taste a lot like an almond joy!
Make these. Make them now.
from Martha Stewart
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.
