Recipe for Coconut Rum Cookies
284g (10oz) butter, room temperature, 4 tablespoons Coconut Rum or other alcohol, 227g (8oz) white sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 738g (1lb 10oz) flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt,1 egg, 1 x 7 oz. bag sweetened coconut, 1 x 12 oz. bag chocolate drops
Cream the butter and sugar together
Add vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the rum, then beat together for 2-3 minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt together then add to the butter and sugar a little at a time until all the flour is incorporated.
Cover the cookie dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Make an egg wash by beating the egg with the remaining 2 tablespoons of rum.
Scoop the dough into balls using a 1 1/2 tablespoon scoop, dip into the egg wash and roll in the coconut.
Place the cookies on a baking sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray and bake for 20-25 minutes until slightly browned on the edges.
While the cookies are still warm, press one chocolate drop into the center of each cookie.
