Billy and Cally came home for the weekend. They only got to stay 1 night because of this storm that the weathermen seemed to blow out of proportion again. Billy and Cally went up to Columbus last night because Cally had to catch a flight to Florida today and we were afraid with the ice they were predicting that it might be tough getting her there. As it ends up we could have taken her because as of right now the weathermen were not right on what they were predicting. They are still saying we are to get a lot of snow overnight but I am not holding my breath on this one.
I made these cookies so Billy would have some goodies to take home with him. The coconut lime flavor is really tasty
Coconut Lime Vanilla Wafers
1/2 C butter, softened
1 C white sugar
1 Tbps lime juice
1 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 C flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
sanding sugar for dipping before baking
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla, lime juice and coconut extract. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt then add dry ingredients into the cookie mixture.
Drop by teaspoons fulls onto ungreased (I used cookie sheets covered with parchment paper) about 2 inches apart.
Bake until edges of cookies are golden brown 12 to 15 minutes.
