Ingredients (for 24 cookies):
- 3/4 lb. unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp. water (for egg wash)
- 7 oz. sweetened flaked coconut
- Boysenberry jam
1) Preheat oven to 350° F.
2) Cream together the butter and sugar, then immediately add the vanilla. Use an electric hand mixer with single paddle or do it the old fashioned way!
3) Separately, in a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Mix with butter mixture until dough starts to come together. Roll into a flat disk and chill for 30 minutes in your stainless steel refrigerator.
4) Roll the dough into 1 ¼ in. balls. Dip each ball into the egg wash, then roll in coconut. Place the balls on an ungreased premium large cookie sheet.
5) With a spoon or your finger, press a light indentation on top of each ball. Drop ¼ tsp. of jam into each indentation.
6) Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the coconut flakes are golden brown. Wait a few minutes to serve or jump right in!
