Kid Tested and Approved!
What you need:
1 bag of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
5 T butter (soft)
3/4 cup Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (a must for your pantry!)
1/4 tsp pure almond extract (optional, but lovely)
1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all of the ingredients listed above (except the raw sugar)
and use a small kitchen scoop. I end up creating 2 dough balls from
each scoop (this is a small, roughly 2 tablespoon scoop). So, if you do not have
a small scoop, roughly size out a heaping tablespoon for each dough ball.
Then roll the tops of the dough in raw sugar, gently pressing the dough
to create a disc. Place cookie dough discs, sugar side up, on a parchment
lined baking sheet (you will fit about 20 small discs on a standard size sheet)
Bake for 9-11 minutes, until the edges start to turn golden.
