I originally found this recipe in a Duncan Hines holiday insert from some magazine. I have no idea how old it was when I found it, but it was 1993 when I made the discovery. Knowing my grandpa loved coconut, I decided to make these for his Christmas gift. HE LOVED THEM!! So what did I do? I promptly lost the recipe during a move! I searched and searched for it, but was unable to find it. I very recently got the recipe, except it was not complete as it quite obviously did not have enough liquid. I made the cookies and guessed 1/3-1/2 cup of oil would be about right, and it was. This was originally made with Duncan Hines Golden Sugar Cookie mix, but it seems they no longer make that... I successfully substituted the Betty Crocker 17.5 ounce version with no problem.
