These are soft cookies that can be made instantly. You just need to mix, shape and refrigerate to get semi-set cookies that just melt in your mouth. The Coconut Ball Cookies combine the mild sweetness and mellow flavour of coconut with the tanginess of orange juice. While crushed coconut biscuits form the core of this biscuit, part of the excitement comes from a coating of desiccated coconut, which gives a nice icy-flaky mouth-feel when chilled.
