I put off making these cookies for a while because I couldn't find unsweetened flaked coconut. Finally I located some though, so I threw together these cookies before I left Bloomington for the summer. They were pretty good. They tasted like the typical yummy coconut snowballs that I love, with the slight twist that they had a nugget of chocolate in the middle. They were quick and easy to make and came out very pretty. I thought they had a very slightly strange flavor to them, but I couldn't identify what it was. I still enjoyed them quite a bit though. Matty described them as, "heavenly." Brad and Deniz also seemed to enjoy them -- we ate more of them than we probably should have last night. These cookies are a simple, yummy treat for a coconut lover.
Here is the recipe.
Matty and I were in Chicago this morning, making a little pit stop at the Midwest Topology Conference on our drive to Boston. We didn't make it to the conference though -- my mom called early in the morning to tell me that my grandmother had a bleed in her brain and had gone into a coma.
So we are in Wisconsin now, in my grandmother's room in the ICU. I have a big extended family, and almost everyone is here. She is hanging on -- her vitals are stable, but she isn't expected to come out of the coma. The doctor expected her to pass this morning, but now it seems like she might make it until tonight. I feel fortunate that I am able to be here, surrounded by family during this time. No one expected this to happen right now, but it may be for the best... her mental and physical health has been declining for the last couple years.
Probably there will be no posts from me for a couple days... I can't imagine I will be doing a lot of cooking.
