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)

Made for Gimme 5 Tag. These lil morsels of goodness are so easy to make and so delightfully delicious!I baked them exactly 15 minutes and they remained tender and so yummy.

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.
