Cherry Pom Poms
Posted by moderndaygourmet on August 31, 2007
These are fun cookies and kind of unusual so I like to make them for parties and such. My brother in law raved about these at Christmas one year. Since they’re red, they’re a good choice for holiday things.
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
3 tablespoons cherry jello mix
1 small box (4 servings) vanilla pudding mix
2 eggs, separated
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 3/4 cups shredded coconut, divided
1 teaspooon water
Mix oil, jello, pudding, and egg yolks. Combine with flour and baking powder. Add milk and almond extract. Stir in nuts and 3/4 cups coconut. Form into balls. Whip water and egg whites to make an eggwash. Roll balls in the eggwash and then in some shredded coconut. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
