Tinting flaky white coconut reminds me of snowflakes falling under holiday lights. The reds and greens add colorful Christmas wonder. — Lee Roberts, Racine, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; gradually beat in flour. Stir in 1 cup coconut. Divide dough in half; shape each into a 7-in.-long roll.
  2. Place 1 cup coconut in each of two large resealable plastic bags. Add red food coloring to one bag; seal bag and shake to tint coconut. Repeat with remaining coconut and green coloring. Roll one log in red coconut; roll remaining log in green coconut. Wrap logs separately in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2013

"These seem like they should be fairly simple, but in reality they weren't . The coconut didn't stick and the logs crumbled when I tried to slice them. Probably won't attempt these again"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

"Flavor was good- a delicate coconut taste with a classic butter cookie. However I had a lot of difficulty getting the coconut to stick to each log- even after 2 hours of refridgeration. Also, the coconut, when dyed, wasn't vibrant as vibrant as the picture. They are very addicting though!"
