Clarion County Recipe of the Day: Sweetheart Coconut Cookies

Thursday, February 7, 2019 @ 12:02 AM

Posted by J.C. Taggart

Here’s the perfect gift for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day!

Sweetheart Coconut Cookies


1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Coarse white sugar
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam


~Place coconut and sugar in a food processor; cover and process until coconut is coarsely chopped.

~In a large bowl, cut butter into flour until crumbly. Stir in coconut mixture. Stir in eggs and vanilla.

~On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour. Using a 1-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out the center of half of the cookies. Reroll small cutouts if desired.
Place solid and cutout cookies 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets.

~Bake at 375° for seven to nine minutes (or until edges are lightly browned). Remove to wire racks.

~In a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, water, and vanilla; brush over warm cookies with cutout centers. Immediately sprinkle with coarse white sugar. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of jam over the bottom of each solid cookie; place cookies with cutout centers over jam.
