Yummy, moist and a pretty green. Great for your holiday tray, or anytime.

Just like the cake, but a cookie. Nice nutty flavor with the coconut and walnuts. My first batch was still a little "raw" in the center (a little too undercooked for my personal liking). I baked the next batch for about 14 minutes, these came out perfectly ... chewy and moist just how I like them. I made this for Spring PAC 2009.
