Number 1, I know I've been missing in action on my blog. Number 2, I know coconut and Christmas don't quite go hand in hand but what the heck. I think any sweets and Christmas go together! I also thought why not go ahead and try blogging again today. If it makes you feel good, than do it. These little gems are a cross between butter cookies and macaroons. So please, eat the cookie. Better yet, have two!
1 box French Vanilla cake mix
1 package softened cream cheese
1 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1 stick softened butter
1 cup flaked coconut
Cream butter and cream cheese in stand mixer. Add in egg and extract, mix on med high speed until smooth. Then add cake mix and whip together. Lastly incorporate coconut flakes. Chill dough in fridge for about 2 hours. Spoon onto Silpat cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes depending on your oven. Cool cookies on a rack then enjoy! Store in airtight container.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you all have a blessed holiday week!
