These are a nice crispy cookie. I like that they do not have chocolate in them (DH didn't). I scaled ther ecipe way back to 20 cookies (1 roll) and used unsalted butter instead of shortening and Special K instead of Corn Flakes. They came out buttery and crisp and I loved the coconut in it as well. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
