Coconut-Lime Cookies

If you are looking for a tasty treat, you MUST try these coconut-lime cookies - they're seriously fabulous!
You know how most people like a glass of milk with their chocolate-chip cookies?  Well these cookies beg to accompanied by a margarita (not to dip the cookies in - that would be weird, but to drink in addition to).
These are the perfect treat for warmer - margarita weather!  If only I didn't live so far away from a beach...

    12. oh man, bloglovin randomly unfollowed your blog! I just so happened to think I haven't seen anything pop up from you in a while, and typed in your address thinking maybe you were taking a relaxing week. Then I see all sorts of missed things. That makes me a little nervous, I don't want to have other blogs unfollow esp ones I won't actively remember. Ugh, anyway, I'm back! I bet the coconut is good with the lime, I don't normally like lime by itself but I think with a coconut tone too it would be pretty tasty!
