Coconut Stick Cookies
Have I told you about my love of all things coconut? It runs deep my friends, real deep. I have never met a coconut I didn't like...except for those fake coconut extract flavored things out there...nasty impostors. Eating coconut makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy too. I found this recipe on the Lottie and Doof blog, and they got it from the cookbook, Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich. This is currently on my Amazon wish list, one day soon I will own it and review it. Speaking of Amazon, I recently sold a bunch of textbooks lying around the house to them and in return got a nice fat credit to buy whatever I like. It feels like Christmas because I keep getting orders in the mail, movies, books, cds, cookie cutters...wow, you really can buy anything on Amazon.
I was quite pleased with these cookies, and thought they would have been even better dipped in a fresh sorbet or ice cream. Next time it will be so. Or maybe even with a sweet spiced cream cheese dip. So many options and not enough time to spend at the gym. My lifelong dilemma.
Click here to find the recipe, the only thing I changed was I added more water because it was too dry. If you don't want to make these into sticks you can always shape them into a log, chill, and then slice and bake instead.
