Church on the Property this weekend called for everyone to bring cookies to share. I made these. If you like coconut, they are yummy!
1/2 pound butter, softened (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp. baking powder
3 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
5-6 tablespoons milk (I needed a bit more)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and extract. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
For icing, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Dip cookies, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; decorate as desired. Let stand until set.
