Coconut Melt Cookies

There’s not doubt that I love a shortbread type of cookie, but when you add sweetened coconut flakes to them…it’s like a mouthful of happiness that you can’t stop eating. If you don’t like coconut, that’s okay! Simple replace the sweetened coconut shreds with sugar, and it will add a little crunch to them (even though they are already crunchy). Who can say no to sugar for an added bonus and effect. You may also use a different variety of sprinkles to add a little bit of extra charm to them! Here’s the recipe – Enjoy!
