I started off motherhood thinking that I would be raising the loveliest behaved angel on the planet - that lasted all of 1 hour, 3 minutes, and 42 seconds. The minute she threw a fit…I decided by any means necessary I would calm that beast.
Thing is, if you have done the same thing I did - Give into their whims, bribe them, and let them watch The Real Housewives with you – chances are you might have a little problem on your hands.
Indigo did not I repeat did not dismantle the bush outside of our house, making herself leaf salad, using roses for tomatoes.
Indigo did not I repeat did not throw a ball 46mph into the head of a one year old, no ma’am not my Indigo.
Indigo did not I repeat Indigo did not make me drag her through Target all the while still giving in when we hit the 1 dollar bins...give me strength lord.
Anyways I just thought I would throw that out there for you, we are all learning as we go! I turn red probably 86.5 times per day for fear of other mom’s judgements…but hey I promise to cut you slack if you cut me some right back.
INGREDIENTS (makes 25-35)
delightfully borrowed from AllRecipes
• 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup butter
• 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 1 egg
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
• For my glaze I simply mixed ¼ cup ½ & ½ with powdered sugar until it reached a thick consistency.
• Extra coconut for decoration
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.) Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually blend in the flour mixture, then mix in the coconut. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly toasted. Cool on wire racks. Once cooled mix up your glaze. Dip each cookie half way in, and then sprinkle coconut on the glazed area.
Texture for this cookie is a slightly crispy edge and soft center, cookies do flatten a bit but taste great! I would love to stay here and chat but I hear meowing and Indigo is nowhere to be seen…
