Coconut Jumbles




  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and coconut flavor until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift salt, flour and baking soda together into a small bowl and gradually beat them into the egg mixture.
  4. Stir in the coconut until everything is well combined.
  5. Drop the dough by the teaspoonful onto prepared baking sheets; use the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in sugar to press each ball down slightly.
  6. Bake the cookies for 9 minutes, or until they are light golden brown and just firm to the touch.
  7. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, plunk half a candied cherry (round side up, of course), or a macadamia nut, into the center of each and press down gently.
  8. Cool the cookies on a wire rack.

Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
