I found this recipe in the November 29, 2008 issue of Family Circle on page 110 http://www.parents.com/recipe/cookies/sweet-coconut-snowballs/

  • 1  cup of sweetened flake coconut
  • 1  cup of  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  •  6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter - softened
  • 1  teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4  teaspoons of  milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grind 1/2 cup of the coconut in a food processor.
  3. Chop the remaining coconut and set it aside.
  4. Add the flour, 1/4 cup of the confectioners' sugar and the salt.
  5. Pulse to blend. Add the butter and vanilla -  pulse until the dough comes together.
  6. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls.
  7. Place the dough balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  8. Bake the cookies until firm but tender about 15 minutes.
  9. Remove to a cooling rack and let the balls cool completely.
  10. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar and enough milk until it is smooth but still thick.
  11. Dip the cookies in the glaze (about 1/2 teaspoon for each), letting it drip down sides.
  12. Dip the cookies in the chopped coconut and set aside for glaze to dry.
