  • 1
    Heat oven to 375° F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until dough forms.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 24 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 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.
  • 5
    Sprinkle each cookie with coconut; top with 3 candy eggs.

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.
