MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2013

These cookies turned out really good and tasty. They weren't as hard to make as they look and the bits of pecan and German chocolate in the cookie is really good. My kids really liked helping dip the cookies in the chocolate and sprinkling the coconut on at the end.
