Hawaiian Tea Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jane Rhodes-Williams

I can't remember where I found this recipe, but these are my favorite cookies at any time of the year. I love anything with cconut! If you are a coconut lover as I am, you're sure to love these cookies! The recipe can be adapted to fit the season, simply by changing the color of the sugar you use to coat the outside of the rolls! Can be halved or doubled, although i have never mad

Very buttery and delicious. Instead of rolling them into a log, I rolled them into individual little balls about 1 inch in diameter. I then rolled the cookie balls in colored sugar and baked as directed. Big hit!
