Glazed Coconut Lime Cookies & Ribbon butter cookies

While I'm posting, I don't want you to get confused with the fact that these are cookie recipes from Sydney. Sydney is new to our blog....you might want to know THIS is her recipe. She also just had a baby. like JUST had a baby. So how can I expect her to blog when she has a sweet lil' thang to take care of. {and heavens! is she sweeter than all these cookies combined. babies are like that aren't they.} Sydney made two cookies! (I know, right? for just having a baby, that's pretty generous of her time) Her first cookies were the Glazed Coconut Lime. Soft and moist.

Bake for 10 mins or lightly browned
Cool baked cookies before adding glaze
With electric mixer, blend all ingredients for glaze together. Glaze should be finished when it looks glassy and drips slowly from a spoon (about 3-4 mins)

Last week I was meandering through costco. Trying to decide what I NEED and what I WANT and what samples to taste test, when we walked infront of a butter cookie sample. As I crunched I thought- these are christmas cookies arent they. they also remind me of old people. old folks and christmas. ah.
Then Syd meantioned she was going to make them for the great exchange :) and I smiled. how did she know?

I am pretty sure she started out with a cookie press, and then threw it to the wind. I mean- she does have a newborn baby :)
