Anna Maria Island Cookies!
A quick and delicious recipe
With the holidays fast approaching I thought today we could focus on one of my favorite topics…food! Ha ha
Between the cookie exchanges, family gatherings and work potlucks it is always good to have a quick and delicious cookie recipe to wow your friends, family & guests with!
One of my favorite cookies are called “Island Cookies” or
“Anna Maria Island Cookies” as I like to call them! 😉
The coconut and nut flavors combine to add a tropical flair to the usually basically chocolate chip recipe. I would love to know what are your favorite holiday cookie recipes? Leave a comment down below!
