I just made these for my mother's cookie exchange she has every year- they came out SO cute and yummy! Got recipe from Food Network. Recipe called for unsweetened coconut - I did used sweetened and I did not sue the zest of orange (didn't have one)

I loooove these! They are definitely addictive! The orange zest is a nice touch. I am giving this 4 stars because they were a tad hard to make. One thing that helped me was to wet my hands before forming each pyramid (I was determined to make them in the original recipe shape- I guess you could always use a small ice cream scoop and make them more organic). They disappeared faster than I made them!!
