i love the idea of meticulously decorated cookies, but the process makes me nervous.
here’s what i do.
step 1: bake cookies. i used target’s store brand sugar cookie mix – super easy and just as good, if not better than scratch. there is a time and a place for store-bought mixes. this is one of them!

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.
