Made this recipe (along with some others) as part of a cookie give-away some of us are having in our mobile home park today & they are very nice tasting little buggers! I think I actually like them better cold from the frig, but however they're eaten, that combo of date & cherry & coconut is very nice! Thanks for posting the recipe!
