Sweet summer parties are always memorable because of the great food and conversations. One can plan different types of cookouts and potlucks to make the whole experience more indulgent and special. Home-made things have always a more personal and decadent touch than store-bought things. Of course, it is easier to buy everything from the market and simply serve it, but it just doesn't taste as good as the food made at home.

* Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are the cutest and the most attractive-looking cookies on the list. These cookies are really easy to make at home and yet they look like something that has been outsourced from a high-end bakery. Peanut butter cookies are made by using ingredients like brown sugar, baking soda, regular sugar, all-purpose, flour, butter, vanilla extract, and peanut butter. The star ingredient is the chocolate kisses. After making cookie dough, the cookies have to be given the shape of small circles and a little hole has to be created in each of the cookies before they are baked. After baking the cookies, a chocolate kiss has to be carefully put inside each cookie inside the hole before being served.

* Strawberry Cookies

There is no way a person wouldn't like having some fresh and fruity cookies in summer. Most people must have already tried different desserts made from strawberries. However, subtle strawberry cookies hit differently. These cookies are perfect for a Sunday brunch or a family reunion. The cookies are made by mixing chopped pieces of strawberries in cookie dough and then baking. These cookies are baked in the microwave until the cookies turn golden brown and the strawberry properly melts off in the cookies.

* Coconut Cookies

While it's not practically possible to rest at the beach under the coconut trees every day, it is very much possible to bring the taste of an island to one's home by making something special from coconuts. These golden brown cookies are made from shredded coconut, coconut extract, and coconut milk. Other ingredients like all-purpose flour, eggs, baking powder, butter, vanilla extract, and some brown sugar are also necessary to bake these cookies at home.
