    These coconut peanut cookies were named for a Grand Dutchess of Russia after her wedding. The cookies are popular all over the world, but particularly through Spain and South and Central America. From the Food Network.

    1. 1
      Position 2 racks in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats (If you only have 1 baking sheet, let it cool completely between batches).
    2. 2
      Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl.
    3. 3
      Melt the butter in medium saucepan over low heat, remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the brown sugar with a wooden spoon (the sugar will get soft and saucy, but there may still be a layer of butter on top; don't worry, the mixture comes together as you add the rest of the ingredients).
    4. 4
      Stir in the egg, then the flour mixture, taking care not to overmix.
    5. 5
      Stir in the coconut, oats and nuts to make a textured cookie dough.
    6. 6
      Set aside until it gets to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Using a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop, or a tablespoon,scoop balls of the dough onto the prepared pans, arranging them about 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are golden brown with toasted edges, about 12 minutes.
    8. 8
      Cool cookies in the pans for a couple minutes then transfer with a spatula to racks to cool.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      You can store unshaped dough for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Store the cookies in airtight containers for up to a week. Freeze for 1 month for longer storage.

      I love these cookies and have made them since the Food Network first introduced them. It should be noted that they are not terribly sweet, a more common concept in Central and South America, but the peanut butter and coconut flavors make a lovely tea cookie. Thanks, Annacia for including this recipe on 'Zaar!

      These are WONDERFUL cookies. I used toasted pecans instead of peanuts, and with the coconut, makes for a great flavor. I also used almond flour and gluten-free oats (for gluten-free-ness!) and this made for a little more dense cookie, but great nonetheless. A new keeper! Thanks Annacia for posting - this is the perfect cookie for DH as he likes cookies that aren't over sugary. Made for DIABETIC FORUM TAG (FEB), March 2010!
