Christmas Wreath Cookies

Christmas is just few days to go and kids were in a mood to bake something sweet where they can help me too,I saw these simple wreath cookies  here and so went ahead and baked these.It was really very delicious buttery cookies with coconut topping.Kids liked it very much and they enjoyed helping me in the topping.Do try these out if you are looking for a simple elegant cookies for Christmas !!


Ingredients
all purpose flour/maida  2 cups
butter 1 stick (1/2 cup)softened
sugar granulated 3/4 cup
white chocolate chips 1/2 cup (3 oz)
egg 1
vanilla extract 1tsp
salt 1/4tsp
for topping
confectioner's sugar /powdered sugar 1 1/4 cup
coconut flakes 1 1/2 cup
water 1/8 cup + 1 tbsp water divided
green food coloring 3-4 drops
red m& m candies 1/4 cup


Method
-In a large bowl,cream butter &sugar until light & fluffy.
-Melt in the chocolate chips in the microwave and add to the mix after cooling,along with eggs & vanilla extract.
-Gradually add in the sifted flour with salt.Mix well until combined.
-Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
-On a lightly floured surface,roll out dough to 1/4 inches thickness .Cut with a 3" round cookie cutter or a lid and place it on a lined tray with parchment paper.Using another 1" cutter or a smaller lid with sharp edges,cut out the inner center and remove it.
-Bake in the oven for 10-14 mins,mine got done at 12 mins.(You can notice the sides lightly browned up .
-Remove from oven and cool on wire rack completely.


-For glaze/topping,combine confectioner's sugar and 1/4 cup water,mix well.Add in the coconut flakes in another resealable bag.Mix the food color with remaining 1 tbsp water and add to the bag with coconut flakes.Mix well until the color evenly spreads the flakes.
-Spread the cookies with glaze once cooled completely,sprinkle with colored coconut and finish off with red m& m candies.
-Wait for half an hour so that the topping and glaze sticks well.Serve with tea!!!


Servings~ 20-25 cookies

NOTES
* I have used the sweetened coconut flakes so reduced the confectioner's sugar to 3/4 cup.
