Coconut Stars For The Cookie Press

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup cake flour or 1 2/3 all-purpose flour
1 cup finely grated, unsweetened dessicated coconut - use medium if you can't find fine.
3/4 tsp salt


Cream shortening with brown sugar, then add the egg and beat until smooth. Mix the coconut and the flour and blend into the moist ingredients at slow speed, again until smooth.

Drop onto greased cookie sheet with a cookie press. Bake at 350 F for 12 minutes.

They are delicious plain, but it's nice to dip a few in melted milk chocolate.
