This recipe comes from an old Swedish recipe book given to the employees of IKEA many years ago. These easy to make cookies simply melt in your mouth. They are one of those "nobody can eat just one" cookies!
Cream together sugar and butter. Add vanilla. Add dry ingredients and beat on low for 3 minutes. Add coconut just until blended.
Divide mixture in half and roll into logs approximately 12" X 2". Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate over night.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice logs into 1/4" slices. Place approximately 2 " apart on the cookie sheet as they will spread. Bake just until the edges are a light tan color. Can be anywhere from 8 - 12 minutes depending on your oven. Enjoy! Sprinkle with colored sugar for a more festive look.
