Lemon Coconut Pixies

Lots of cookie baking going on here over the last few weeks.  This is another family favorite, I've been making these for over 15 years! Their beautiful color and citrus flavor is great for any occasion. I found this recipe in a Hershey's cookbook, and it's also on their website. I'm a big fan of cookie scoops for uniform cookies. Not only does it make for a nice look, but it also ensures they all bake evenly. I just love cookies that are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside!

Sparkle Cookies

      These are one of the easiest cookies that I make, and they are always a hit. They start with a pouch of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix, and you dress them up with colored sugar, nonpareils, or sprinkles.  I started adding a teaspoon of extract to the dough, vanilla, sometimes lemon, but anything will work. I highly recommend using a scoop to get uniform cookies. It also allows you to handle them less and keeps them a better texture.  This makes for a beautiful cookie that's got a crispy exterior and are soft and chewy on the inside.
