These cookies are amazing! And found on Pinterest! Here’s where I got them!
1/3 cup butter, softened 3 oz. cream cheese, softened 3/4 cup sugar 1egg yolk 2 tsp. almond extract 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 5 cups flaked coconut, divided
In a large bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and almond extract. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in 3 cups coconut. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle. Roll into 1-inch balls and roll in remaining coconut.
Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cool on pan for 2-3 minutes or until chocolate is softened.
