Bake cookies about 15 minutes, remove from oven, then sprinkle with Sweetened Coconut Dust. Cool cookies before serving.
Directions for Sweetened Coconut Dust
In the bowl of a food processor or a high speed blender, add 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut and 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia. Pulse for 10 to 15 seconds or just until a fine powder is created (pulsing the mixture to long will create a paste).
