I made these cookies for a friend I went to lunch with today. My mom used to make these when I was a child. They are one of my favorite Christmas cookies and they look so festive. They are made with basic a sugar cookie recipe and a doughnut cutter. The icing and coconut are colored with green food coloring. To color coconut place it in a ziploc bag with a few drops of food coloring and shake - Easy Peasy! The red hots and coconut are really good together especially the day after frosting because the red hots soften.
