      While these are very easy to make and tasty too, I beg to differ on the quantity of cookies you get from this recipe. My dough balls were 1 inch diameter, and I only got 10 cookies. It also too more of the chopped coconut to cover the dipped cookies - a LOT more. Don't start this recipe without some extra coconut for dipping. I recommend that you make your dough balls closer to 1/2 inch diameter if you want 2 dozen cookies. The frosting has a raw taste to it. That might settle down over time, but I ate my taster cookie while it was fresh.

      These cookies are so pretty! A little bit more work than I'm used to - I prefer the drop from the spoon cookies - but they'll look so nice on the Christmas tray. thanks.

      Lainey - these are perfect little cookies. They come together so easily and you do get 24 little cookies. I made one batch with vanilla extract and one with almond extract - both are YUMMY! They look adorable too on a cookie tray! :) So glad I tagged you in 123 Hits. Thanks Lainey! (Updated to let you know that these have become a favorite of the family! I tried some with chopped almonds in the batter too and they were great! April 2009)
