This is a very old recipe enjoyed by family and friends. A must at our family gatherings especially Christmas.

The topping is delicious! Its the only non-chocolate cookie I've made this year. But the base is so crumbly that its disintegrating as we try to eat them. The family doesn't care for coconut so I substituted rolled oats tossed with a tbs or so of melted butter to duplicate the texture and it complemented the other flavors beautifully.
