I've always loved to make cookies for my boys. Years ago, I made cookies often when their friends came over to play. These days, I'm making cookies for bridal showers as my boys' friends are getting married.
Married. Can you believe that? Boys who used to hang out in my bonus room will now have homes of their own??
Oh, well. At least I can still make cookies, like these gorgeous Coconut Shortbread Cookies.
These cookies are so delicious yet so easy to make! Here's the recipe.
Coconut Shortbread Cookies
2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
Cream together butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Add flour and coconut; mix well. Roll into 1-inch balls. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten in a criss-cross design with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from oven. Allow to sit on cookie sheet for a minute, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.
