It isn’t properly Christmas until you’ve baked Christmas cookies right? Well, I thought I’d add to my 12 days of Christmas Cookies series today with a slightly exotic variety! You can add all sorts of ingredients to this cookie dough, so feel free to experiment! Baking time stays the same. Tomorrow I’ll post a peanut and chocolate variety so look out for that.

A few tips: you can use orange juice as a substitution for the orange liqueur, although I prefer using Cointreau. If you want, you can keep some of the grated coconut aside to sprinkle on top before baking. These cookies will keep for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container!
