Apricot Coconut Cookies

Day 11 already of our 25 days of holiday cookies and treats! Today we are sharing Apricot Coconut Cookies!

These are the perfect combination of fruity flavors combined into a seriously good cookie. I gave these to John’s Grandmother and she loved them.

Can you tell I have been on a coconut kick lately. I just realized we have already had 4 other cookies with coconut in them over the past 11 days of holiday cookies. I really hope y’all like coconut as much as I do. If you are not a coconut fan like our Hawaiian neighbor, which seems wrong on so many levels, Don’t worry we will have some non-coconut cookies this week too! :-)
