A crunchy little cookie dipped in minty green icing and rolled in unsweetened coconut. Oh, so delicious!
It’s been a warm Christmas so far and I have been craving something cool and minty in all this warmth.
I’m usually not a huge fan of coconut but these little morsels are down right delicious!
The cookie base has simple ingredients that you would expect in a cookie with a surprise bite of oatmeal. They are actually not made with granulated sugar but with powdered sugar!
After they are baked they have a wonderful texture that is similar to a crispy butter cookie. Not too dry and/or crumbly and not overly sweet. The mint in the icing is a nice change of pace from the type of cookie I’ve been making up to this point. Like a refreshing palette cleanser.
We have officially made cookies for 10 days now! That is SO MANY COOKIES! 12 Days of Christmas Cookies has been a success so far and all the guys that work with The Hubster (including my Father-in-law) have enjoyed the treats every day!
Even my boys are getting kind of tired of cookies – all they wanted for dessert today was roasted strawberries with warm soft cheese and a few crackers. Which was totally fine with me!
I hope you enjoy these beautiful and tasty little cookies – let me know what you think!
