Here’s Charlie Parker with Bird’s Nest.
6 T butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
2/3 cup flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 bag (14 oz) sweetened flaked coconut
The better part of a bag of royal dark cadbury mini-eggs
Preheat the oven to 350
Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in the egg. Stir in the flour, bp and salt. When everything is well-mixed, add the coconut. You should have a fairly stiff flaky batter.
Scoop out golfball-sized amounts. Put it on a lightly buttered baking sheet. Flatten it, and with your thumb make a cavity in the center.
Put 3 eggs in the little cavity. You choose the color scheme!
Press the edges of the “nest” slightly so they overlap a tiny bit with the eggs.
Bake for about 25 minutes, till the coconut seems to be browning on the edges. I did 10 minutes on the bottom shelf, then moved it to the top and turned it around.
Let them cool and set a bit before you try to eat them.
