few drops water 1 drop green food coloring 1/4 cup flaked coconut 48 vanilla wafers 24 chocolate-covered peppermint-patties water sesame seed or poppy seed
Procedures : Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small screw type jar combine the few drops of water and the green food coloring. Add coconut, cover and shake till all of the coconut is tinted. Set aside. Place half of the vanilla wafers, flat side up, on an ungreased cookie sheet. Top each with a peppermint patty. Place in the 350 degree oven for 1 minute or just till chocolate begins to soften. Sprinkle each patty with 1/2 teaspoon tinted coconut. Top with another vanilla wafer. With a clean paintbrush, pastry brush, or your finger, brush the top vanilla wafers with just enough water to moisten so the sesame of poppy seeds will stick. Sprinkle each cookie with a little sesame seed or poppy seed and serve"
