These cookies are a hit at my house! J who is 13 loves these, every Christmas he will say mama did you get the coconut for the cookies? For him it wont be Christmas (desserts) without Coconut Macaroon Cookies. Its such an easy recipe, but these little snowball cookies have a great addicting taste to them, you cant eat just one, or two, or three....

whole wheat flour
sweetened coconut flakes
Beat butter, cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add egg yolk, vanilla and fresh orange juice mix well. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; slowly add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in 3 cups coconut.
