Wild Blackberry & Coconut Butter Cookies

Intrigued? …..

They were utterly and completely delicious. Ina Garten never disappoints.

SO delicious, I sent my dad a box full of them for his B-day.  My mom has complained he refuses to share.

I sent him a total of 27 cookies.  A day and a half in he was down to 19.  My mom was forcefully limited to 3.

I also sent some chocolate-covered Alfajores (dulcet de leche filled cookies). Same buttery cookie – different filling – all out of this world.


  • 3 sticks (1.5 cups) unsalted good-quality butter, softened (since I am very impatient, I placed my cold butter in a mixing bowl, cut it up in small chunks, and placed it in the oven at 180 degrees for about 5 minutes.  Just don’t let it melt– you want it soft.)
  • 3.5 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp real vanilla extract
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Filling
  • 2 eggs
  • Coconut
    1. Preheat oven to 350
    2. Mix butter and sugar until creamy with a whisk. Add vanilla.
    3. In second bowl, mix flour and salt.
    4. Add butter mixture to flour.  Mix together with your hand (or with a fancy mixture if you have one)
    5. Roll into a disk, cover with parchment paper and freeze for 15 mins.
    6. Roll into little balls
    7. Dip in egg mixture
    8. Roll in coconut
    9. Indent middle of cookie with finger
    10. Fill with favorite jam
    11. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
    12. Bake for 11-17 minutes, depending on thickness.  Coconut should be brown.
    13. Enjoy!
