Coconut Sugar Cookie Cups are the perfect treat for all of you coconut lovers any time of year, but especially for Easter. They look just like little Easter baskets, so these yummy cookies practically beg to be filled with jelly beans! They’re the perfect addition to your potluck or sweet ending to your Easter dinner!
The base of these treats is a take on my favorite sugar cookie recipe. I’ve added in some flaked coconut, extracts and used Wholesome! Organic Cane Sugar. If you’ve never used cane sugar in your baking, you’ll love it because it measures and bakes the same as refined white sugar but of course it doesn’t have GMOs or pesticides and is better for you! The coconut cookie mix is baked in mini muffin tins and then cooled completely.
When it comes to desserts, I am always a sucker for the frosting on cakes and cookies (are you with me!?)!
Did you know that Wholesome! creates organic frostings too? Wholesome! Organic Vanilla Frostings not only taste amazing (one of the best premade frostings we’ve ever had actually), they contain no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors and are GMO free! Big win in my books!
As much as my kids love the frostings, I love them too (I may or may not have licked the spoon
four times a couple of times myself when putting these together)! To make filling the cookie cups easy, I place the frosting into my piping tool or piping bag and squeeze it. Once filled, they’re dipped in coconut.
You can certainly serve these cookies as is however, you can also decorate them for Easter by adding Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans to make them resemble adorable little baskets. These pretty jelly beans are naturally fruit flavored and don’t contain corn syrup.
I know your family is going to love these Coconut Sugar Cookie Cups just as much as mine did!
