Soft Tropical Mango Peach Coconut Cookies and My 100th Post!

Can you believe this is my 100th post?! It seems like such a milestone to me, but it's probably child's play to some of the more experienced bloggers. ;) I started this blog on February 27th, 2012 without any idea of what would happen, if anyone would read it, not knowing what an HTML code was or what a linky party was ... I knew nothing about blog buttons or rss feeds ... I had no idea how much time went into writing posts, taking pictures, editing pictures, editing your post, using social media to get your blog "out there" ... I had no idea how much time goes into making your blog "just right" (does that ever happen by the way?!) ... and I never really knew what a great community there is in blogging. How things have changed! Man, I have learned so much and y'all have been so great to me! :) I am so thankful to everyone who takes the time to read, comment, share, encourage me and just be my Bloggy Friends! 



Today's recipe name is long (sorry - I didn't know what else to call it) - I'm sharing a Soft Tropical Mango Peach Coconut Cookie - The best part?!? It uses frozen yogurt and no eggs! :) Don't fret if you can't find the exact same yogurt - you can use any frozen yogurt or sherbet! (You may have to call it something else, but it's all good!) I love this combination of flavors - if you can find this frozen yogurt, I definitely recommend it!








Soft Tropical Mango Peach Coconut Cookies
Yield: about 4-5 dozen

1 pint TCBY Tropical Mango Peach Frozen Yogurt, softened
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pkg. (18-1/4 oz.) dry white cake mix
1 bag (14 oz.) sweetened coconut flakes

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine softened yogurt, extract and dry cake mix; mix well. Stir in coconut. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2-in. apart onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.


I hope you enjoy!

  6. These look yummy! I never would've thought to use frozen yogurt in cookies :) I may have to try these!

    Oh & quick question ~ I tried to put your party button in my sidebar, but it just shows up as HTML code instead of the picture. Do you know why that might be happening?

    And thank you for following me!! Always exciting to have your first real follower (besides Mom lol)!

  11. I'm visiting from See Ya in the Gumbo, and must congratulate you on getting to your 100th post - especially in such a short space of time. It took me ages to clock up 100 posts, and I remember when I first started it would take me nearly a whole week to actually create a single post.

    Loving these cookies and I'm totally intrigued by the use of frozen yoghurt - can't wait to try.
