  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. In a saucepan, cook butter over medium-low heat until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the coconut, sugar and cream. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate until easy to handle, about 25 minutes.
  2. Roll mixture into balls, then shape each into a cone. Return to baking sheet; refrigerate for 15 minutes. In a microwave or heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening. Dip bottoms of cones into chocolate. Return to waxed paper to harden. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

My mom has been making these since before I was born (I'm 29). She adds food coloring, either red or green, to add a festive Christmas touch. These are my favorite Christmas Cookie and they ar...

My mom made these every Christmas, and now my sisters and I make them. They are so easy, and so good! I hold them on a fork to dip them in the chocolate.

Great for coconut lovers like me :) Sweet and delicious. Very easy to make and I love that they aren't baked. Dipping in chocolate was the most difficult aspect as they fell apart a bit during...

It just isn't Christmas without coconut peaks! My mom made these all my life and I've continued the tradition. She always used some green food coloring--I can't imagine them without that touch. ...
