Orange Coconut Cookies

Recipe Information
Simple to make and good to eat!


Serves/Makes:2 dozen or more

  • 1 6 oz (168 grm). can frozen orange juice, undiluted and thawed
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) butter, softened
  • 1 12 oz (336 grm). box vanilla wafers, crushed
  • 1 lb (.5 kg). box powdered sugar
  • 1 package Angelflake or shredded coconut
  • Combine orange juice, butter, vanilla wafer crumbs, and powdered sugar together and blend all ingredients well.
  • Roll into small balls, then roll in coconut.
  • Refrigerate until firm.
Hint: Try making these using Lemonade mix or Bacardi Mix for Pina Colada balls. Okay to add a little rum to balls for adult "zest" .

Use food coloring to heighten color if you like, very pretty with spring menus, but nice year round. I have made these for almost every baby and wedding shower I have been involved with in any way.

These are GOOD!
