I am taking some time away to celebrate becoming a married women and relaxing with my new hubby! So a few friends have graciously offered to keep you company! Thanks, Phi!
Hi there! My name is Phi and I am so excited to be guest posting for beautiful Megan while she is away getting married and honeymooning! I love everything about The Housewife In Training Files Blog – the beautiful photography, the clever writing, and most importantly the delicious looking food! Needless to say, I am honored to be guest posting!
Meg and I first ‘met’ when we were doing the Sizzling Summer Giveaway and Bog Hop and since then I haven’t been able to stay away – I mean, have you guys seen her recipe for 5 Ingredient Strawberries and Cream Tarts? I’m all about that deliciousness!
Speaking of recipes with 5 Ingredients…I just so happen to have a series on my own food blog (Sweetphi.com) called 5 Ingredient Fridays where I…you guessed it… post recipes with 5 Ingredients or less on Fridays! TGIF!
So today, I’m excited to share my 5 Ingredient Friday recipe with you for 5 Ingredient Chocolate Coconut Slice and Bake Cookies! They’re super easy to make and taste absolutely yummy…the coconut toasts right up around the outsides of the cookies so you’re left with a delicious toasted coconut and rich chocolate cookie!
One of the keys to making these bad boys is letting the dough cool so that you can just slice and bake them…with my patience running low some days I have to force myself to leave the kitchen otherwise I will angrily stare at the freezer and say ‘freeze faster’ to which my husband replies from the other room ‘honey, it’s not going to freeze faster if you yell at it’ (since I’m in the kitchen and he can’t see me…insert some unseen eye rolls here lol).
After you do your obligatory waiting for the dough to cool, you simply slice and bake the cookies, let them cool a little, and viola, you’re all done!
What I love about these cookies is that they’re perfect for making ahead; you can even keep a batch made and freeze them for last minute guests, and trust me, your guests will love you forever for making them these fresh cookies!
Thanks again Meg!
