Hi! Welcome to Sweet Melissa Sunday!! I was scared of the recipe this week because it involved...coconut. I know, weird. I'm not a big coconut fan. Don't get me wrong, I eat those little mini Almond Joys found in my kids halloween bag. But I usually don't bake with anything coconut. So I was a little hesitant to bake a whole batch using coconut. But I had noooooothing to worry about because these cookies were amazing!!
Ellen of the blog Blue Tree Green Heart picked this recipe and it was a great one!
The orange zest made my whole kitchen smell delightful while I was making these. These cookies were like little haystacks of sweet, coconuty, chocolately, orangey goodness. Notice the past tense...they were eaten and GONE pretty quick!! I managed to save some to take to work and 2 people asked for the recipe. I think they liked 'em!!
This recipe is the whole reason I joined Sweet Melissa Sunday. I had the chance to bake something I NEVER would have picked on my own and test it out. I'm so glad I did!! Check out what the other SMS bakers did this week. And have a super Sweet Sunday!!
