I also love coconut. Put them together with some M&M mini’s and you’ve got yourself the PERFECT holiday cookie! It would be hard to pick a favorite from the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies here at Tried and Tasty, but if I had to – these would be right up near the top. They are absolutely perfect. They are the kind of cookie that you just can’t eat one of. Thankfully I took the batch of them to work and shared with my co-workers so I wasn’t tempted to hide in the closet and chow down on the whole bunch of them. Not saying that I would do that, but left alone I’m not sure what I’m capable of with a delicious batch of freshly baked cookies. Make a batch, you’ll understand what I mean.

      I don’t know that I had either before I found them in my cookbook – I’m sooooo glad that I did! The goal of my series was to hopefully bring something new to the table!! There are so many of the same kinds of cookies floating around and I wanted to stand out in the crowd!

    Mmm I love oatmeal in cookies especially when there are no raisins! And I love the festive colors in these cookies. These look delicious!
