Coconut Snowballs


1 cup sweetened flake coconut
1 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups confectioner's sugar
Pinch salt
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 teaspoons milk

1. Grind 1/2 cup of the coconut in food processor. Chop remaining coconut and set aside. Add flour, 1/4 cup of the confectioners' sugar and the salt. Pulse to blend. Add butter and vanilla; pulse until dough comes together.
2. Heat oven to 350°F. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place dough balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
3. Bake cookies until firm but tender, 15 minutes. Remove to rack; let cool completely.
4. In small bowl, stir together remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar and enough milk until smooth but still thick. Dip cookies in glaze (about 1/2 teaspoon for each), letting it drip down sides. Dip in chopped coconut and set aside for glaze to dry.

Would it be possible to make these without a food processor (they look and sound delightful, but I don't currently have access to a food processor)? And if so, would the recipe need any changes (in either ingredients or how it's put together)?

Yes, you can make it with a mixer. I don't think the recipe would need changing :)
