Instant coconut cream pudding mix is the key to these crunchy cookies that are perfect for dunking. "For variety, use chocolate or lemon pudding instead," suggests Susan Putkonen of Gilbert, Minnesota.
These golden cake-like cookies are my favorite, especially around the holidays. They disappear quickly from my dessert trays. The subtle pumpkin and cinnamon flavors pair nicely with chocolate chips.

This is my son's all-time favorite cookie. He will share just about anything, but these are an exception...he gobbles them up! Coconut and oats provide the chewy texture. —Carol Brandon of Uxbridge, Ontario
In Northampton, Pennsylvania, Victoria Zmarzley-Hahn bakes these chewy oatmeal cookies that are full of butterscotch chips and raisins. "Every so often I add a half cup of chopped pecans to a batch for something different," she notes.
My four grandsons stated attending "Grandma's Cooking School" when they were as young as 4. This recipe from my hand-written cookbook is a favorite of the youngest, Brandon. He has fun making them and is always delighted with the results as is the rest of the family.—Helen Hilbert, Liverpool, New York
