Coconut is an absolute favorite of mine.  Not only in cookies but also in chocolate and all kinds of deserts.  I made these cookies for valentines day last month but did not get a chance to publish them until now.  This is one of those must try recipes (in my opinion of course).
1 cup shreded dry unsweetened coconut
1 cup sugar
2.5 cups flour
3/4 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons milk
  • Using a food processor, process coconut and sugar until it is fine as flour
  • In a separate bowl, mix together butter, and flour until you get a "crumble"
  • Mix everything together. 
  • Mix eggs separately and add to the flour mix and to get a medium dough.
  • Turn to a lightly floured surface and roll out 1/2 cm thickness.
  • Cut using a cookie cutter any shape you like
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Cook 8 - 10 minutes (until the edges change colour a bit)
  • Set aside to cool
  • Prepare icing and spread on your cookies.  If you like you can add coloured candies too
  • Set aside for about 1 hour.
