Made these today with my 3 yr old today. They were quick and easy and very tasty!! Made with a cookie scoop so it made 18 cookies. Made a dozen as per the recipe and 6 with chocolate chips added. Will make these again because they are a quick cookie to make. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.

These are totally awesome!! The batch size is perfect, I found it made exactly 24 cookies. I didn't have shortening so I subbed butter which probably make mine a bit more golden than the recipe intended... I also added 1/2 c chocolate chips since we like the coconut/chocolate combination. This is an excellent recipe which I'm sure I will be making again. Thanks for sharing it.

Yummy was the review given by one of my testers...the small batch size was ideal for just the 2 of us and the occasional drop-in. Followed the recipe exactly..oven time was right on. Quick and easy recipe. Thanks so much for posting.
