Christmas Baking 2009

I was feeling a little bad about not doing any Christmas baking this year.  So I did a little today.  I made a family favorite - it's a variation on coconut macaroons.  We call them "coconut flatties".  It uses the same recipe as the macaroons, you just neglect to beat the egg whites to stiff peaks (oops). 

After that fiasco wonderful batch of cookies I decided to try another one.  These actually turned out quite cute.  Maybe even cute enough to take to the neighbors.  I made chocolate cake mix cookies, dipped them in white chocolate and then sprinkled pulverized candy canes on the top.  Those cookies along with some leftover candy canes....I think we may be on to something.

Are the coconut flatties a tradition? I'd love to try some, if only because the name is hysterical.
