Coconut Clouds

 I hope you enjoy this recipe 


1/4 cup of butter, softened

1 cup shortening

1 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp coconut extract

1 cup sour cream

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp salt (I used 1/2 tsp)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup flaked coconut


1/3 cup butter, cubed

3 cups confectioner's sugar

3 TBSP evaporated milk (I used 5)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp coconut extract

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Use parchment paper, please, for the love of Christmas use parchment paper!

Cream sugars and butter together.  Add eggs and beat until well combined.  Add in extracts and sour cream.  In a separate bowl combine, flour, baking soda, and coconut.  Add into your wet mixture and mix until combined. 

Using a teaspoon or cookie scoop, please cookies approx 2 inches apart.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then remove to cooling rack.  

When all cookies are baked, in a heavy saucepan, melt b. utter, let it cook until it is a dark amber color.  It will be browned but not burned Remove from heat and add in extracts, milk and powdered sugar.  Mix to combine.  Frost each cookie on top and dip the frosting into your coconut.  Place back on cooling rack to set. 

This recipe is supposed to make 5 1/2 dozen cookies but I got 3 dozen!
