If you love coconut and pecans, you'll love these cookies! These little cookies are nice and soft and are packed full of coconut and pecan flavor. I got the recipe from a friend but made a few changes to fit my tastes. Delish!

Uh oh! These are dangerous; so delicious!! I made last night and put them in the fridge and made a few today. Plan to put the rest in the freezer to make a few at a time otherwise I might eat too many at a time! Really good! Made for Zaar Cookbook tag game. Edited to add: this works well in the freezer. I put one roll in the freezer, then pull it out and cut off what I want. Cookies bake up nicely just like when first made and, being in roll form, are easy to cut off a few at a time.
- 1⁄2 cup butter (i use real butter, but i'm sure it would work fine with margarine- might not be QUITE as tasty, thou)

- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups pecans
