Philly Bon Bons

Philly Bon Bons

These are a Traditional Holiday treat from my childhood.  Although when mum made them..they were white.  And not having the original recipe..this is MY recipe..and is close to the original as I could figure.


Flour, Philadelphia cream cheese....Icing sugar and shredded coconut..and obviously food colouring.

Cream Together brick of cream cheese
2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup coconut
and colouring

With a wooden spoon thoroughly mix in 1 and 1/2 cups flour.
The dough will be soft..but this is a refrigerator cookie and will firm up when chilled.
Dump remaining coconut in a seperate bowl.

Using a teaspoon drop a half teaspoon or so of dough into bowl of coconut and gently agitate bowl until ball is covered. Place cookie in a little foil cup and repeat.

Like I said these are a refridgerator cookie..but I keep them in the freezer until time to bring out..
Bonne Appetite!
