Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in 3 cups coconut. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.

  2. Roll into 1-inch balls and roll in the remaining coconut. Place 2-inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10–12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie; sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cool on pan for 2–3 minutes or until chocolate is softened. Remove to wire racks to cool completely
