Lillie’s Cookies


Last night, a young lady asked me to create her a recipe for Valentine’s Day with coconut in it ..

So I baked her some heart cookies!

They have a texture similar to sugar cookies.

I hope she’ll like them!

(You see Lillie.. there is a post just for you!!! :))


16 large cookies


* 2 cups white flour

* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 3/4 cup butter or margarine

* 1 cup sugar

* 1 large egg

* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

* 1 cup shredded coconut

* 1/4 cup chopped cranberries

* red food coloring (few drops)


* Preheat oven 350′F

* In a bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder.

* In another bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla. Add the food coloring until you reach the color you want. (More red or more pink) Mix.

* Pour liquid mixture into flour mixture. Mix.

* Add coconut and cranberries. Mix.

* On floured surface, roll dough and cut with cookie cutter (I used a large  heart).

* Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

* Remove from the oven and let cool a few minutes before putting them on a cooling rack.

* Enjoy!
