Coconut Cookies And A GIVEAWAY!

Aren’t these just lovely?

I know, introducing a recipe and getting all emotional right there in the first sentence might seem a little weird, but with these cookies I can do or think or act no other way. I just looove them.

The whole story is that I’ve been a big admirer of stamped cookies for quite some time. And when I found this cookie stamp set in a store the other day, I just could not leave it there. I got myself an Easter set, a set with with the geometric patterns and a Christmas set as well. With the boxes looking all sweet and adorable in my shopping basket, it suddenly occurred to me that you could actually like them too… so I went ahead and grabbed another piece of each set to share with you.

And that is the story of me and 6 cookie stamp sets that I ‘somehow’ found myself bringing home. Ha!

Oh, and then there’s another story about these lovely and delicious Coconut Cookies which needs to be told as well.

But first things first, the GIVEAWAY…

And now for the Coconut Cookie recipe…

These cookies can be made with any kind of cookie cutter really, the one that you have on hand is perfectly fine. The cookies are full of coconut and vanilla goodness, they hold the shape while baking and they will taste great, stamped or not. 🙂

To make the cookies, in a bowl, mix all the ingredients.

Form a smooth dough ball.

Place the dough on a plate, cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 320 °F (160 °C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out to about 1/6-inch (4 mm) thickness.

Using a cookie cutter (cutters), cut out shapes.

With the cookie stamp set I was using, I first cut out a circle with a cutter part.

And then, without moving the cutter part, I used the stamp part.

I simply inserted the stamp into the cutter and gently pressed on the handle.

    Hi, my Easter would not be complete without my mum´s carrot cake baked in a lamb-shaped pan.
    By the way, I love stamped cookies too and I will definitely use your recipe to try out my new stamp saying “Eat me” 🙂 Thanks.

    Hey, Petra, what a fantastic recipe and what cute cookies! My favourite treat that I associate with Easter is the kozunak – a traditional sweet bread that we eat in Bulgaria on this special holiday. The bread is made with yeast and eggs and can be filled with jam, nuts or chocolate or could just be left plain and sprinkled with sugar. Do you have anything similar in your country? Love your blog, greetings from Sofia! 🙂

    The Greek “tsoureki” (something like brioche, but a lot better), especially with hazelnut-chocolate mousse on top…..oh, my diet just went off the cliff!

    For me, the idea of typical Easter thing is ‘baranok’ – a stuffing made from stale bread, eggs, chorizo and parsley. We don’t suff anuthing with it, just bake it plane and eat hot or cold.
