Key Lime Coconut Pecan Cake Mix Cookies {Simply Sweet Saturdays}

Instead of putting the lime in the coconut I put the coconut in the key lime cake mix, added some chopped pecans and made some pretty tasty cookies.

Have you seen the new cake mixes that are out right now by Pillsbury?

One of the flavors is key lime and when I saw it I knew I wanted to turn it into cake mix cookies. I took a recipe that a friend shared with me recently from Mr. Food and altered it to make these cookies.

Key Lime Coconut Pecan Cake Mix Cookies
Adapted from Mr. Food
Print Recipe

1 box key lime cake mix
1 1/2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If you are not using a silicone baking mat or parchment paper then spray your cookie sheets with cooking spray.

Combine all ingredients except the powdered sugar and mix well. The dough will be sticky so you may want to wear gloves.

Put your powdered sugar in a shallow bowl and roll a tablespoon of dough in the sugar (I used a small cookie scoop).

Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until the edges are light brown. Allow the cookies to cool about 5 minutes on the cookie sheets and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: 24-30 cookies
