Coconut Cookie Nests

6 T butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
1 egg
2/3 cup flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 bag (14 oz) sweetened flaked coconut
Choose Chocolate Easter eggs from the Nutman Co

Preheat the oven to 350

Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in the egg. Stir in the flour, bp and salt. When everything is well-mixed, add the coconut. You should have a fairly stiff flaky batter.

Scoop out golfball-sized amounts. Put it on a lightly buttered baking sheet. Flatten it, and with your thumb make a cavity in the center.

Put 3 eggs in the little cavity. You choose the color scheme!

Press the edges of the “nest” slightly so they overlap a tiny bit with the eggs.

Bake for about 25 minutes, till the coconut seems to be browning on the edges. I did 10 minutes on the bottom shelf, then moved it to the top and turned it around.
