Lemon Coconut Pixies

Lots of cookie baking going on here over the last few weeks.  This is another family favorite, I've been making these for over 15 years! Their beautiful color and citrus flavor is great for any occasion. I found this recipe in a Hershey's cookbook, and it's also on their website.

I'm a big fan of cookie scoops for uniform cookies. Not only does it make for a nice look, but it also ensures they all bake evenly. I just love cookies that are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside!

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
