2 cups flour
2/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter soften
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp sour cream Room temperature
2 egg yolks from large eggs room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
3. Add egg yolks, one at a time, while continuing to mix.
4. Add sour
cream and vanilla extract and mix until thoroughly combined.
Add flour and salt and mix until you end
up with a weird lumpy mixture. Once it has reached this stage it is easier
to just use your hands to knead into sugar cookie dough.
6. Roll this dough between two sheets of wax paper. Remove the
top sheet of wax paper.
Sprinkle shredded coconut and spread it all over the flattened cookie dough.
Put the wax paper sheet back on top again and roll it one last time. We want to make sure to push the coconut into the dough.
7. Use cookie
cutters to cut out shapes. If you do not have cookie cutters, take an empty
glass and cut out round cookies.
8. Bake at
350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Your cookies are ready when they are light golden
brown around the edges.
9. Sit back and enjoy your creation!
