Swedish Coconut Cookies

I am on a coconut kick! These cookies are so light and buttery and coconut-y delicious. Almost like a shortbread, but thinner. This recipe makes 72 cookies, which is great because they disappeared quickly. Keep a roll in the fridge, cut them up and bake when you have a cookie party to go to, or a Christmas party. These will be your new favorite cookie, I promise, they are that good!!

Hi Jackie! So happy you enjoyed the pecan cookies! The no bakes are a smaller cookie, almost bite size. the Swedish are light and crunchy, they also make more cookies than the no bake.
