Libbie's Coconut Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

From my mother-in-law's recipes. It's really old and I don't know where she got it, but it's really coconutty. These are good and she made them a lot when Rudy was little in the 40's and 50's.

I can confirm the good rates you got with this recipe.
They come out tender we love them very much. It will be difficult to keep some until Chritsmas!
I got 4 baking trays full!
