Yummy Tiny Burgers

few drops water
1 drop green food colouring
1/4 cup flaked coconut
48 vanilla wafers
24 chocolate covered peppermint patties (small)
sesame seeds

A little ahead:
Colour the coconut.
In a small screw-top jar, combine the few drops of water and green food colouring.
Add the coconut, cover and shake until all of the coconut is tinted. 
Set aside.

To make:
1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.  Place half of the vanilla wafers, flat side up, on an ungreased cookie sheet.
      Top each with a peppermint patty. 
      Place in oven for about 1 minute (watch carefully), just until the chocolate begins to soften.
3.  Sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon tinted coconut. 
      Top with another vanilla wafer and press gently.
4.  Using a pastry brush, or clean finger, brush the tops of the vanilla wafers with
      just enough water to moisten so the sesame seeds will stick
5.  Sprinkle each cookie with a little sesame seeds.

And voila, 24 tiny hamburger-shaped cookies with vanilla wafer "sesame seed buns",
peppermint "meat" patties and coconut "lettuce"!
