Delectable cookies! These did not last the day with our family.

2/3 cup finely grated coconut,(unsweetened)
2 tbsp SPLENDA® Granular
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp finely grated lemon peel
1 egg
1 cup SPLENDA® Granular
1 1/4 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix (see link under recipes)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sultanas, OR seedless raisins

Combine coconut and 2 tbsp SPLENDA® Granular and spread out on dinner plate. Set aside.

In food processor or in bowl with electric mixer, process butter and lemon peel. Add egg and 1 cup SPLENDA® Granular; process.

In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix, baking soda and salt. Add to food processor alternately with sour cream. Mix in sultanas or raisins. Leave mixture on counter top or in refrigerator 20 minutes (I actually skipped this step this time and worked with the soft dough).

Roll teaspoons of cookie batter into balls and roll in sweetened coconut. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets, leaving spaces between cookies for slight spreading. Bake in 350°F oven 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown underneath. Cool on cookie sheets. Keep at room temperature or in refrigerator.

These look yummy Jennifer!

They are and so quick and easy to make once one has the bake mix prepared. I usually double up on the bake mix so that I normally have some on hand. I'm making them today again. Thanks for dropping by. I know you are busy.

I am thinking of making coconut cookies. So came to look for ideas. I do have a sour cream in my fridge. your cookies look nice. Don't the coconut flakes burn while baking.

Good question, Balvinder Ubi - mine didn't burn. Have a nice day, my friend. :)
