These Coconut-Lime Snowballs are absolutely adorable! They are super yummy too, and your kids will have a grand time helping you make these little holiday treats. I added a few shakes of white crystal sprinkles into the sweetened coconut for a little more of a glittery-snowy appearance. I really had fun setting up this photo shoot, I felt like I was working with real snowballs and fluffy white snow, only no worries about anything melting! Do you want to build a snowman? :0)
The taste of fresh lime juice is refreshing when it comes to holiday cookies~ I would definitely recommend picking up some fresh limes (not pre-squeezed juice) to use for this recipe. These little cuties are made with Ultimate Butter Cookie dough plus a little lime zest, rolled into teaspoon size balls and baked in the oven. Then they are bathed in a cream cheese glaze infused with fresh lime juice and rolled in sweetened coconut that has been refined a bit in a food processor.
Simple, easy, delicious and fun, Coconut-Lime Snowballs will become a favorite traditional cookie to savor and share during the holidays.
