  • 3 Bake 8 to 10 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.

Expert Tips

For even baking, make sure cookies are of the same shape and size.

Any frosting can be used, but we preferred the fluffy white since it is very white in color.
