Made with both sweetened and unsweetened coconut these mounded treats are just the right amount of sweet.

Ingredients

1/2
cup sugar
1
tablespoon water
2
teaspoons corn syrup
1/4
teaspoon almond extract or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1
bag (14 oz) sweetened shredded coconut (about 5 1/3 cups lightly packed)
1 1/2
cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut
3
oz cream cheese, softened
2
egg whites, slightly beaten

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Line 1 large or 2 small cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, combine sugar, water and corn syrup. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in almond extract.
  • 3 In large bowl, combine sweetened coconut and 1 cup of the unsweetened coconut. Pour sugar mixture over coconut; beat with electric mixer on low speed until well mixed. Add cream cheese and egg whites; beat on low speed until blended.
  • 4 Place remaining 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut in shallow bowl. With moistened hands, firmly shape rounded tablespoonfuls of coconut mixture into balls; roll in unsweetened coconut to coat. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet.
  • 5 Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, at least 30 minutes. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Unsweetened coconut can be found in either the baking aisle or the organic foods section of the grocery store.
