This is a yummy and quick little cookie with a mild yet convincing coconut flavor. Mark called these coconut shortbreads and I think that's pretty much on point.
Everything gets whizzed up in the food processor. The coconut is unsweetened, which helps keep these cookies from being too sweet. A quick knead to bring the crumbly dough together and a rest in the refrigerator and this dough is ready for rolling and cutting.
Even with the rolling and cutting, the dough is simple and easy to work with. I hate rolling and cutting, and this time I wasn't complaining. Eliot loved the cutting out of cookies, too. So I made him some homemade play dough so he could continue playing and I could finish up and bake the cookies.
I guess I suck at rolling out evenly because some cookies were thinner than others and therefore browned something awful. However they are pretty good.
