I made these wonderful cookies a while ago and I don’t remember if there’s a story to tell. Someday I hope to regain control of my blog, lol, I’ve been let it run wild for a couple weeks now. Amazingly, people still check it out every day!! That’s some seriously dedicated readership I must have, except that my boyfriend admitted to not usually reading my entries and just drooling over the pictures. I don’t mind, I’d do it too, but I usually try to make my musings on the recipe as entertaining as possible so hopefully most of you aren’t missing out on the core of my blog’s awesomeness. I sent these cookies to a couple different friends and family and they received rave reviews across the board. They’re so easy to make, it’s crazy not to try this recipe. They’re also low fat since we’re using Angel Food cake mix.
Yield: 5 dozen
1 package (16 oz) angel food cake mix
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
2 cups flaked coconut
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, water and almond extract on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape bowl; beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Fold in the coconut.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove paper with cookies to wire racks to cool.
