    Title: Jeweled Coconut Drops
    Categories: Cookies, Cheese, Citrus, Fruits
    Yield: 42 servings

    1/3 c Butter; softened
    3 oz Cream cheese; softened
    3/4 c Sugar
    1 lg Egg yolk; room temp
    2 ts Orange juice
    1 ts Almond extract
    1 1/4 c A-P flour
    1 1/2 ts Baking powder
    1/4 ts Salt
    3 3/4 c Sweetened shredded coconut;
    - divided
    1 c Seedless raspberry
    - preserves; warmed

    Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and
    fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg yolk, orange juice and
    almond extract. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking
    powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
    Stir in 3 cups coconut. Refrigerate until easy to
    handle, about 30 minutes.

    Set oven @ 350ºF/175ºC.

    Shape rounded tablespoons of dough into balls; roll in
    remaining coconut. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking
    sheets. Press a deep indentation in the center of each
    with the end of a wooden spoon handle. Bake until edges
    are light brown, 8-10 minutes. Cool 1 minute. Using the
    wooden spoon, enlarge any indentations that may have
    narrowed or closed. Remove cookies from pans to wire
    racks. Fill with preserves; cool completely.
