Method

Preheat oven to 325°F. 

Zest mandarins to obtain 1 tablespoon zest. 

Juice mandarins to obtain 1/4 cup juice. Set aside. 

In a large bowl, beat 1 1/4 cups sugar and oil on medium speed for 1 minute. 

Add juice, zest and vanilla and beat again. 

Add flour, 1/2 cup coconut, cornstarch, baking powder and salt; beat again until combined. 

In a bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup coconut.

Form dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. 

Arrange 2 inches apart on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. 

Dip a flat-bottomed glass in water and then in sugar mixture. Press down firmly on each cookie, re-dipping the glass as needed. 

Bake until golden brown and just firm, about 15 minutes.
