A cookie fit for a queen!
  • ½ c. salted butter, softened
  • 2-3 T. sugar
  • ½ c. coconut cream powder
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1T.+ 1 tsp. water
  • 14 or so Cameo Candies (1-1/2" to 1-3/4"), depending on how many cookies are cut out
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Cream butter, sugar, and coconut cream powder. Mix in flour well.
  3. Roll dough out ¼" thick on a lightly floured board. Cut out shapes with 2-1/2" to 3" cookie cutters. Flower and teapot shapes are nice.
  4. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake 17-18 minutes, or until cooked through, but still pale on top. Remove cookies from baking sheet onto a cooling rack. Cool.
  5. Icing: Mix powdered sugar with water. Icing consistency should be like thick gravy.
  6. Place ½ tsp. of icing in the middle of each cookie. Use a brush to "paint" the icing neatly to the cookie edges, adding more icing as needed. Place one cameo candy in the center. Allow to icing to airdry and harden overnight.
  7. (If you are unable to find coconut cream powder, substitute finely shredded unsweetened coconut. Add in after the flour has been mixed in.)
