Orange Slice Coconut cookies are sponsored in conjunction with #christmascookies week. All opinions are my own
Years ago when I took Home Ec we had the opportunity to pick out a cookie recipe to make in class. The assignment was to cut the recipe in half so we would know how to do that.
I chose a recipe for a cookie with coconut and candy orange slices in it. It sounded wonderful. The only thing was it had 3 eggs. I asked my teacher how to do that and she didn’t know! She simply told me to make the whole recipe!
How to divide an egg in a recipe
So I am going to tell you how to cut an egg in half for a recipe. Crack the egg into a cup. Whisk it well and then measure out half of that mixture. Easy peasy and something a Home Ec teacher should have known
I had lots of that cookie dough and I loved it. I created this recipe as something similar and it is delightful.
It makes about 5 dozen cookies so it is great to give as gifts. I like to make a batch and keep them in the freezer to have on hand.

Prize 2 - Adams Extract Prize Pack
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams' wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.a Rafflecopter giveaway
