Raspberry Coconut Dreams

These are my favorite cookies.  They almost melt in your mouth. They're also good with orange, almond, or lemon extract.


3-1/2 C flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 C butter, softened
1-1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp raspberry extract
1 C sour cream
1/2 C shredded coconut

1/2 C butter, softened
2-1/2 C powdered sugar, heaping
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp raspberry extract
2 Tbl cream
Red food coloring

Combine dry ingredients and set aside.

In separate bowl, cream butter and sugar.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add vanilla, raspberry extract, and sour cream. Slowly add dry ingredients to sugar mixture. Mix until combined.

Chill dough for 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes. Don't allow to brown. Cool.

For frosting, beat all ingredients for 2-3 minutes.

Add the appropriate amount of coloring for desired color. Beat another 2 minutes. It will be very fluffy.

Frost cookies and sprinkle with more shredded coconut.

Store in an air-tight container for up to five days.
