1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 drops yellow food color
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups flaked coconut
36 jelly beans

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, beat sugar, egg, vanilla, and food color with an electric beater on medium speed until well blended. Beat in flour until smooth then fold in coconut.

3. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flour your thumb and make an indentation in the center of each cookie to create a "nest."

4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Remove from the oven and gently push 2 jelly beans into each nest. Let nests cool slightly on cookie sheets then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight containers.
