Coconut-Pecan with White Chocolate and Lime Sugar Glaze

Under the wire!  My September Auction cookie!

We have had a beautiful summer.  It really seemed to go on into our fall season, so I thought I could use my summer cookie for September..  So this is it.  And it is my new favorite!

In past summers, I have played with lime and coconut in cookies.  This time, I don’t need to look any further.  I made them for an event in June at church, but thought they lacked a bit.  I do love nuts.  Bought some macadamia nuts, but really found them to be a little off.  Anyone else feel that way?  If they didn’t come directly from Hawaii, and are really fresh, the oils seem to go bad.  Anyway, I did have pecans, and they were just right.

I have someone new to bake auction cookies for this year.  The Principal at Valley Christian!  Gloria’s daughter bought them for her.  What a sweet gift!  I got the seal of approval from her husband Loren this morning.  He said that he really enjoyed these cookies.

When I think of Valley, I can’t help but mention Marvalene.  Continue to keep her in your prayers.  She is still fighting that cancer.  I caught her in her office a couple of times recently.  She looked good, and was in good spirits, but of course chemo and the fight have taken a toll.

    These sound GREAT … but would never work @ my house (few coconut fans here)! However, I would be one to make them & take them to a church thing … so glad you’re still making cookies … you’re the best!!!
