      My mother-in-law gave me this exact recipe except she rolled the balls in powdered sugar. I just wanted to post this in case someone doesn't like coconut.

      One of my favourite recipes for Christmas! I sometimes add 1/2 pkg marshmallows, craisins or raisins to the mix, increases the amount of cookies it makes and adds more fruit flavour. Easy and excellent!
