1986 Winner: Coconut Joys

Author/Submitted by: Shere Case of Hickory Hills, Chicago Tribune annual Food Guide Holiday Cookie Contest December 4, 1986
Servings: 36
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1/2  cup  Butter
2  cups  Confectioner's sugar
3  cups  Coconut flakes
1  tablespoon  Milk
2  ounces  Semisweet chocolate, melted

1. Melt butter in saucepan. Remove from heat. Add sugar, coconut and milk. Mix well. Shape rounded teaspoon of mixture into balls. Make a dent in the center. Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

2. Fill center with melted chocolate. Chill until firm. Store in refrigerator. These freeze wonderfully and look beautiful on a tray.

Winner Shere Case of Hickory Hills describes her cookie entry: "Holiday preparation usually starts in September and continues until the night before Christmas. I have been doing this for almost 18 years, and each year I add more recipes. This particular cookie, passed on to me by my sister- in-law, Diana Forkash of Wisconsin, ranks among the favorites of the family and friends. It looks absolutely gorgeous on a plate, tastes wonderful and is absolutely the easiest thing to make. There is no baking time involved, and you can sit down on the job and enjoy doing them."
