You put de lime in de coconut and drink ’em bot’ up. Sorry. Had to do it. I’ve got a treat for you today. These coconut lime cookies I devised are chewy but soft sugar cookies with a twist, and are perfect for your Cinco de Mayo celebration. Plus, I cheated and used a sugar cookie mix, so they come together super-quick, which is what you want since May 5 falls on a weeknight this year, right? No muss, no fuss. You could keep things super-simple by just hosting a happy hour with some guacamole, a pitcher of margaritas and these cookies. Ole!
5-Ingredient Coconut Lime Cookies
1 package sugar cookie mix (I used the store brand)
1 stick melted butter
zest and juice of 2 limes
1 1/4 c. sweetened coconut
Mix all of the ingredients together and drop by rounded tablespoon-full onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Optional: If you want your cookies glazed, mix 1/4 c. powdered sugar with 1-2 T. lime juice, adding the juice gradually until the glaze is the consistency you want. You could add a little zest to this too. Drizzle on the cookies when they’ve cooled, and let it harden.
