Coconut Lime Drops

Sweet, crumbly, and incredibly quick to make, these tender little sugar-dusted morsels are an easy and convenient no-bake twist on classics, like Mexican wedding cookies and citrus meltaways. If you happen to prefer the flavor of lemons to limes or even oranges, switching in one citrus fruit for the other is a simple substitution.

1 package vanilla cookies
1, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, divided
2 teaspoons lime zest
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted
1. Process the Nilla Wafers and 1 cup of the powdered sugar in a food processor until finely ground, 1 to 2 minutes. Add lime zest, lime juice, and corn syrup, and pulse until mixture just begins to come together, 2 to 3 times. Add coconut, and pulse until mixture comes together completely.

2. Shape dough into about 30 (1-inch) balls. Place remaining 1/3 cup powdered sugar in a shallow bowl; roll each ball in powdered sugar until coated. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for 4 to 5 days.
