1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg

  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.
