Coconut Clouds

The other night I wanted to make cookies for my hubby to take to work in his lunchbox, but I was tired of all my usual cookies. I started flipping through the cookie pages of The Cake Mix Bible. Yes, I have a Cake Mix Bible. I made the first recipe I came across for which I had all the ingredients. As luck would have it, they turned out to be sinfully delicious. In fact, they are my new favorite cookie. They remind of macaroons but they're more cookie-like. Just typing this post makes me want to eat one. Or ten.

Coconut Clouds

2 2/3 c. flaked coconut, divided
1 (18.25 oz.) box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. almond extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put 1 1/3 c. coconut in a bowl and set aside. In large bowl, combine cake mix, egg, oil, water, and almond extract. Beat on low until combined. Stir in remaining 1 1/3 c. coconut. Roll dough into 1-inch balls, then roll lightly in reserved coconut. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on baking sheet before removing to cooling rack to cool completely.
