It’s been so hot here, I want to get in the pool and never get out. Such is Summer in the South…wouldn’t trade it for anything, though. 🙂
Today I was in the mood for a light tropical cookie. Something that matched with the tropical feeling my yard is giving me right now. 😉
You will need:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
Cream butter and sugars together, then beat in egg and flavorings.
in a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Then mix in the coconut.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to sugar mixture.
Roll into small balls and place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. bake at 350 degrees for about 11 minutes or until cookie is golden brown.
You can eat it just the way it is or for a little added flavor top with a lime icing. 🙂
Simple Lime Icing:
Mix 2 TBSP Lime juice and 1 TBSP softened (not melted) butter or margarine, 1 drop green food coloring and 1 drop yellow food coloring. Gradually add in Tablespoons of powdered sugar (about 12) until the icing is at the desired consistency.
It’s the perfect cookie for a summer luau or cookout!
Mmmmm…these look so moist and tasty! Coconut and lime together rock!

Oh, yum! I bet the almond just makes it! Stay cool!
Funny thing is my hubby didn’t think the almond and lime would be good together…until he tried them. He ate a ton of them, lol!
