I have created a Coconut Shortbread Cookie using So Delicious Coconut Milk featuring two different glaze options. These gluten-free, vegan cookies are simple to make, taste delicious and are a great alternative to packaged animal cookies. Kids will love these cookies and won’t ever guess they are healthy.

  1. Looks like a great recipe! However, more instructions would be helpful. Do you use BOTH glazes? Or does a person choose which one they want to try?

    • You can choose between the glazes, I think its nice to have choices and give options.
      The number of cookies depends on the size of your cookie cutter. You should be able to get at least 2 dozen.
