Best Homemade Cookies With Coconut

These cookies come from a Martha Stewart costume circa 2007. Obviously, I could not be Martha without bringing some baked goodness, so I found this simple coconut recipe and went to work. I stacked the cookies onto a plate, secured them with hot glue (it was a prop for my costume after all), and brought the extras for friends to enjoy. Everyone really liked the cookies, but I knew they were something special when the boys were picking the hot glue off the prop cookies so they could eat them. The equal parts butter, sugar and brown sugar create an amazing sugar cookie taste and it’s taken a step further with the sweetened coconut flakes. If you make these cookies, you are going to be very happy. My only suggestion – even if you are using these cookies as a prop, skip the hot glue.

This is me and my friends going to the party. You can see I am carrying the plate of cookies and that my friends are the craziest/the best.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
