strawberry coconut cookie swirls

November 22, 2011 § 3 Comments

if i were a cookie, i’d want to be one of these.

i love that they’re reminiscent of those giant swirly lollipops at carnivals and old-fashioned candy stores. i found the recipe on sprinkle bakes but added my own twist, in the form of shredded coconut (that i further shredded in the food processor). the result is a delightfully sweet, buttery cookie that has just a hint of strawberry and coconut flavoring without tasting artificial.

best of all, they’re slice and bake! you don’t have to roll them in the sprinkles, but they actually keep the edges from darkening too much. see? totally necessary.

before baking..

and after!

look at the swirls! i’m not going to lie – these were kind of a pain to make. the dough is incredibly sticky, and there’s a lot of waiting around while it chills, but it’s worth it, i promise. since they’re made with cake flour, they have a certain lightness that kind of makes you forget how much butter they contain. either that or i’m under the spell of their swirly, hypnotizing, butter-content-forgetting powers.

yup.. that’s it.

find the recipe over here! it’s super easy to customize with any extracts or flavorings… i’m thinking strawberry and nutella, or maybe strawberry and green tea.

what flavors would you try?
