Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz) pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4 c
all-purpose flour
1 bottle
(2.25 oz) pink and blue colored sugar
1
container (12 oz) fluffy white frosting
2 c

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 350┬░ F. Grease or spray 24 miniature muffin cups. In medium bowl, stir or knead cookie dough and flour until well blended.

2Roll dough into 24 (1 1/4-inch) balls; roll in colored sugar. Place balls in muffin cups.

3Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set and edges are light golden brown. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove to cooling rack.

4Add coconut to a 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add 3 to 4 drops food color and shake until well blended. It may be necessary to add 1 to 2 teaspoons water to help disperse the color evenly or additional food color until desired color is reached.
