These cookies are my version of the always-popular coconut macaroon. They were originally conceived due to a lack of coconut in my cupboard while I was mid-recipe and in a hurry (of course). I swapped some rolled oats and mini chocolate chips for the missing shreds of coconut, and we were left with this cookie, which is now a holiday favourite.
My boys call them dirty snowball cookies, and I think they’re kind of right. They look like the snowballs we try to make when there’s been less than two centimeters of snow at the end of November and everyone runs outside to make snowy orbs infused with leaves and dirt and little pieces of branches.
I like to package these cookies in holiday-inspired muffin liners. It keeps fingers from getting too sticky and the colourful packaging looks nice with the neutral tone of the cookie.
