I found this recipe in one of those supplements at the check-out stands at the grocery stores. It was full of cookies and bars. I made this for my cookie trays this year and they were a hit. If you like coconut, these are for you.

This was a nice addition to my Christmas cookies. You can't beat the ease in making these and they bake up to a pretty cookie. Thanks jb4 for posting. Roxygirl
