from the kitchen of Alice & Jeanne Coconut flavored emulsion is the secret to this yummy no-roll sugar cookie – it provides a full, deep-bodied flavor that doesn’t weaken with baking.

1 c butter at room temperature
1 tsp coconut flavored emulsion
3/4 c shredded sweetened coconut
2 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
sugar for rolling cookie dough balls
1/4 c buttermilk
1/2 c shredded sweetened coconut
Cream butter and sugar. Blend in egg, coconut flavoring, and coconut. Sift together flour, soda, cream of tartar, and salt and mix into batter. Roll cookie dough into walnut-sized balls and roll in sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of a glass. Mix buttermilk and ½ cup shredded coconut together. Top each cookie round with ½ teaspoon buttermilk and coconut mixture; top this with another flattened cookie round. Pinch edges together. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies edges is just golden.
