Day two of the Great Cookie Extravaganza. It’s not really an extravaganza, but I like the way that sounds.
Lime-Glazed Coconut Snowballs
Butter Cookie Dough
2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1-2 teaspoon grated lime zest
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
16 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 sticks), cut into
sixteen 1/2-inch pieces, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cream cheese , room temperature
1 tablespoon cream cheese , room temperature
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut , pulsed in food
processor until finely chopped, about fifteen 1-second pulses
Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing about 1 1/2
inches apart. Bake in 375-degree oven until lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Cool.
Dip tops of cookies into glaze and then dip into coconut. Set cookies on baking sheet; let stand until glaze dries about 10-20 minutes.
