Reviews for Swedish Oatmeal Drops
"Cookies are my favorite dessert to make, especially if oatmeal and/or coconut are some of the ingredients! My grandson is highly allergic to eggs so I used Ener-G egg substitute and they turned out great. I also ground the pecans and the coconut slightly to make the flavors more subtle--cookies were enjoyed by all!"
"Loved this recipe. Super easy and they tasted great!"
"What a great cookie - easy to mix up and great taste. I chopped the coconut in the food processor, which made a finer level of coconut, and also chopped the nuts in the processor. These turned out great, though they tended to break apart when removing from the cookie sheet. I let them sit for 1 minute and that made it a lot easier. Nice cookie to mix up in a hurry when the sweet tooth strikes!"
"This recipe was quick and easy. The cookies are delicious; light and fluffy and moist."
