on October 3, 2012

Makes:  18 small nests

Cooking Time:10  min

What You’ll Need:
  • 1/4   cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla  extract
  • 3  to 4 drops yellow food color
  • 1/4   cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups flaked  coconut
  • 36 jellybeans

What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets  with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat sugar, egg,  vanilla, and food color with an electric beater on medium speed until well  blended. Beat in flour until smooth then fold in coconut.
  3. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Flour your  thumb and make an indentation in the center of each cookie  to create a “nest.”
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges are golden. Remove from oven and  gently push 2 jelly beans into each nest. Let nests cool slightly on baking  sheets then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight  containers.
