These cookies are fantastic. My mom made them and I just couldn't get enough. Very tasty and do make you want to melt. Thank you so much for the recipe!!!!

First attempt i couldn't make the dough work, would not bind together, 2nd attempt same issue, increased butter to 1.5 cups. Mixing took quite a while (30 minutes) until dry ingredients binded from crumble, glad i didn't give up on mixing, 2 failed attempts would have really upset !! The cookies are more similar to a sugar cookie, didn't melt in your mouth even though butter was increased. Overall quite good, not as awesome as I had hoped they would be.

These were super. They will be on all of my Christmas trays. I think I will try to tint the coconut red and green. Thanks.
