Somehow I feel like this year I am a little late to the coconut game. Usually, I get crazy with it in late January because I truly love it and it just fits perfectly with the outdoor scene. Everything is covered with a fluffy snow!

This year, I blame it on the weather. It’s been glorious here in Kansas. Unusually warm and sunny for days. Until just few days ago when overnight we got a ton of snow. Right now it’s 19 degrees. So so cold!

Bring on the coconut and let’s make cookies! They will hold us over till Spring!

Crinkle cookies are a huge hit in our family. They are easy to make so the kids can make (especially with rolling them in sugar!) and so pretty! I packed them with shredded coconut and few drops of coconut extract. They smell amazing and have a fabulous texture! There is no chilling of the dough so these cookies can be on your table in less than 30 minutes!

These cookies would be a perfect treat for a Spring brunch, baby or bridal shower or for a simple afternoon dessert. Enjoy!
