Wow! Sweet little cookies are made super simple with the help of cookie mix and jelly beans.

Ingredients

1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1
tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1
container (12 oz) Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
1
cup flaked coconut
Food color
Jelly beans

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375° F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, butter and egg until dough forms.
  • 2 Shape dough into 24 (2-inch) balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4 Frost cookies. Add coconut to a 1-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add 2 to 3 drops food color, shaking bag to blend color. It may be necessary to add 1 to 2 teaspoons water to help disperse the color evenly or additional food color until desired color is reached.
  • 5 Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon coconut onto each cookie. Top with jelly beans.
