"I recall preparing these cookies and I'd rolled the dough into balls after placing on baking sheets. I baked cookies 12 to 15 minutes at 350o F. This recipe was considered very good! delowenstein"

MY REVIEW

"These cookies are fantastic. You really should try them. I've taken them to gatherings and people can't stop eating them. My family doesn't like coconut, so I left it out. I can't tell there's anything missing."
