Golden Coconut Drops

Another coconut cookie, but this one has a touch of orange to it. You don't have to add the orange peel but it does give it a distinct flavor.

Made these cookies for a Church gathering. They got rave reviews, even had someone ask for the recipe. I added 1 tsp. of lemon juice and it gave then a hint of lemon which went well with the coconut. They were easy to make. Next time I would at least double or triple the recipe. You want to have lots of these cookies around.
