Swedish Coconut Cookies

Swedish Coconut Cookies are a Scandinavian treat! I absolutely love the sweet, buttery, and crumbly texture of these cookies. This cookie is type of shortbread cookie with a high proportion of butter to flour and sugar. The dough can often appear very dry. If it’s too dry to form the dough, you can add a bit of soft butter, one tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Swedish Coconut Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup shortening
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 2/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Scant teaspoon salt
2 cups coconut

Cream the butter, shortening, and sugar together. 

 Add the remaining ingredients. 

Mix well and roll into 1 inch balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet and flatten with a glass or fork dipped in sugar. 

Baking until light brown – roughly 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Makes 5 dozen.
