Reduce the oven temperature to 350° F.
2 Add the bread crumbs, sugar, and lemon rind to the coconut and whirl for 30 seconds or until the coconut is fine.

Using a rounded measuring teaspoon for each cookie, roll the dough with dampened hands into balls and place them 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.
