It’s always around the holidays that time seems to accelerate to break neck speed. How is it that Thanksgiving is already behind us when Halloween seems like only yesterday and summer is still fresh in my mind? Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to pulling out the decorations and getting festive before the rest of the season rushes by.
But first: cookies. It’s not the holidays without a batch of cookies in the oven, so I have a crispy little coconut cookie for your cookie platter this year.
One can never have too many cookie recipes in their repertoire and these crispy little cookies are so light and buttery and full of coconut goodness.
They’re an unassuming cookie, pale gold in color with flecks of coconut throughout, not the type of cookie that shouts “look at me!” but deserving of your attention nonetheless because they are ever so light and airy with a melt-in-your-mouth texture that will have you reaching for another and another.
They have a sandy shortbread-like texture but with more of a crunch and less of the hassle. There’s no rolling pin, chilling or slicing involved. In fact the whole thing is pretty much a one bowl number (minus the last minute roll in coconut) so it’s a good one to get the kids involved with. It’s also rather quick, which means you can get a batch in the oven in no time when the mood strikes.
It’s one of those recipes I turn to again and again. They’re perfect for every occasion like family gatherings, afternoon coffee or tea, after dinner nibble, cookie exchange, homemade gift etc.…
I should also mention that they pack easily and keep well for days, making them an ideal homemade gift, and since they’re gluten-free, vegan and paleo everyone on your list can enjoy them.
So let’s all get in the kitchen and start baking, because who doesn’t need a delicious little cookie that whips up in a flash in their life right about now?
