Can you believe it's almost here?
Nah, me neither, but we better just face reality
(we can do it together)-
it's only 3 days until Christmas!
So, in the spirit of a beloved song
(that, let's face it, isn't technically a "Christmas Song")-
here are some things I am loving this year-
Trish over at DaisysandDots is super sweet AND creative!

Snowball Chipper Cookies
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup Sour Cream (Go for the real deal, people!)
2 TBSP melted butter/margarine
1 beaten egg white
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 Cups Shredded coconut
1/2 Cup mini Chocolate Chips
4-6 oz semi-sweet chocolate
-Sift flour/baking powder in a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, beat sugar, sour cream, butter and egg white. At low speed, gradually add flour mixture, just until blended. Beat in vanilla and coconut. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
-Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and if desired, spray with vegetable oil (Pam). Form 1" balls by rolling coconut mixture and place 1" apart on baking sheet. Hint- dip fingers in warm water occasionally to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands. Also, make sure to pack the balls decently firm, or they will collapse when baking.
-Bake 18-22 minutes in an oven preheated to 325, just until coconut begins to brown. Cool on wire rack.
-Line cookie sheets with wax paper. Melt the semi sweet chocolate and dip cooled balls until bottom 1/4 is coated. Placed cookies dipped-side down on wax paper and refrigerate 30 minutes, until chocolate is set. Enjoy! Also, these cookies freeze beautifully.
