Coconut Macaroon Cookies


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.... 

Cookies
1/3 cup butter or margarine , softened

3 oz cream cheese , softened

3/4 cup light brown sugar

 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons fresh orange juice

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

5 cups sweetened coconut flakes

Directions
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.
Cover; refrigerate for about 1 hour. Heat oven to 350, shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll cookie balls in remaining 2 cups of coconut. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
