Ingredients

  • 1

    cup butter

  • 8

    oz cream cheese

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

    tsp vanilla

  • 1/4

    tsp coconut extract

  • 1/4

    tsp almond extract

  • 3 1/2

    cups flour

  • 1

    tsp baking powder

  • Flaked coconut and green food coloring

  • Egg shaped candies

Directions

Beat together butter and cream cheese till smooth. Beat in sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and extracts. Mix well. Stir in the flour and baking powder. Roll dough in balls (about the size of ping pongs). Place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Make an indentation in each one using the back of a Tablespoon. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cookies won’t brown. Remove from oven and use the spoon to press down the indentation again. Let cookies cool completely. Mix coconut with a couple of drops of green food coloring in a small bowl with a lid. Cover and shake till coconut is tinted green. Fill nests with coconut, and add a few egg candies.
