Spring is here and that means it is time to make up for the season spent indoors. There is so much to do that the last thing I want to do is spend the day in the kitchen making a dessert that needs to be baked! That’s why I know I can count on Voortman Bakery for the perfect treat.
From the yard work to the spring sports season, I can fit it all in with pleasure. I can also have my dessert, without missing a thing on my to-do list. Voortmans has my sweet tooth in mind with their family favorite cookies. From classics like chocolate chip, fudge striped oatmeal, coconut cookies to yummy sugar wafers and delectable windmill cookies, there is a Voortmans cookie for every occasion.
I love to keep a package of chocolate chip or fudge striped oatmeal in the pantry for a fast sweet treat that my entire family enjoys. But, I am always armed with a package of Voortmans Sugar Wafers when I am on the sideline at a spring baseball game for the boys. These are a tasty treat to share, and I love that they have sugar free varieties available too, meaning everyone can enjoy the snack without guilt or a sugar rush.
I wanted to make the family a dessert we could all enjoy now that the warmer weather is finally here. I decided to get a little creative in the kitchen using Voortman’s Coconut cookies to make this delicious, creamy Coconut Cookie No-Bake Cheesecake for dessert. These coconut cookies are baked with real shredded coconut and have no artificial colors or flavors AND no high-fructose corn syrup.
- 8-10 coconut cookies
- 1 c. heavy whipping cream
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened

Voortmans has been a family favorite for as long as I can recall. I am glad I get to carry on the tradition with my boys. Where ever I stop, I can count on finding a few flavors and varieties of cookies and wafers to keep us munching happily when the craving hits.
