When i was little my mother would make these around Christmas. She died when I was 10 and for years i was looking for the recipe, one with NO PEANUT BUTTER! tried this one and its perfect!! Exact! I followed the recipe exactly, using old fashioned oats and sweetened coconut. Its a sweet but delicious treat! Thank you!
Was pressed for time so instead of making cookies (time consuming to drop onto cookie sheet one by one) I doubled the batch and spread evenly on a 9x13 pan (put parchment paper on pan first) and cooled in fridge. When cooled, I cut into squares and voila, the best! Bite sized heavenly morsels and no fussing making cookies. All the guests loved it. I omitted 1/2 cup of sugar when I doubled the batch as I had only sweetened coconut on hand. Had great results from boiling 2 min as well. Didn't find them too dry or sticky, just right. Would do it this way again as it was a huge time saver.
