Snow Ball Cookies!!

So here is the perfect cookie for Christmas. These are coconut lime butter cookies and they are delish!! I found them on a blog I follow called a . I loved them because they were bright and refreshing. It seems that everything we eat this time of year can be so rich and heavy that it was definitely a nice change. Try them out and Santa will thank you!!

Coconut Lime Snow Balls

2 1/2 Cups Flour
2 tsp Lime zest
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 Sticks Butter cut up
2 tsp Vanilla
2 Tbs. Cream Cheese

1 Tbs. Cream Cheese
3 Tbs. Lime Juice
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar

1 1/2 Cups Coconut

Combine your dough ingredients and roll into small balls. These cookies do not spread so you can bake them close together. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes until the bottom is golden. Remove and cool. Combine glaze ingredients and dip the top of the cookies in the glaze. After dipping immediately dip in coconut.

By the way, I said they tasted light, we need to enjoy our cream cheese and butter before all those crazy new years resolutions start!!
