  • Step 1

    Place ½ cup of the coconut in a large bowl. Chop remaining coconut and set aside. Add flour, 1/4 cup of the confectioners' sugar, salt and mix. Add butter and vanilla. Using a pastry blender, blend until dough comes together. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place dough balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake cookies until firm but tender, 15 minutes. Remove to rack, let cool completely.

  • Step 2

    In small bowl, stir together remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar and enough milk until smooth but still thick. (May need more) Place some of the remaining coconut into a bowl with a few drops of food dye. Massage coconut until consistent color. Dip cookies into glaze and then sprinkle with dyed coconut. Repeat process with each cookie creating different colors if desired. Serve with milk and enjoy!
