I was thrilled to find this recipe. I wanted to make them for Christmas, but I hadn't made them in so many years, I had long lost the recipe. I was so excited to find it here. The cookies are wonderful. I use milk instead of the orange juice and I'm going to use dark chocolate kisses then press a roasted almond on top while still warm. Yum.

I found this recipe years ago too and love it!! This is one of my standard go-to Christmas cookie recipes. So good! I also make a batch without the kisses too.

This is one of my favorite cookies ever....and I usually do not like to eat coconut. This was a melt-in-your mouth tastey treat! December 02, 2010
