Coconut Drop Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Parsley

Nice and sweet. You could sub shortening for the butter and the cookies will be a bit softer.

Very good. (Especially since I prefer sweets with chocolate!) Even using butter rather than shortening, these seem fairly soft. I didn't have any trouble with the baking like the other reviewer did. I used stoneware baking sheets in a gas oven. I did put the batter in the fridge for about 45 minutes before baking. I didn't flatten with a sugared fork, just with my fingertips, but that's mainly because I was lazy and didn't want to mess with the sugar! That little bit of extra sugar sounds good. My cookies didn't spread out very much and I had no problem scooping them off the baking sheet. I thought these were really easy to make and tasty too.
