MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 12, 2010

"I made these for a potluck and they were a hit once people realized they were cookies and not meat filled. Yes, they look like hamburgers! I had to tint extra coconut to finish the cookies and the mixture only made 18 total. Also, since it was a potluck I chose not to add the peanut butter chips in case of allergies. Delicious and fun, I will certainly make these again!"
