I wish it had a photo with it as other than a roll and cut off and bake, have no idea of what all could be done. Some do need to remember that coconut is still a nut and some people may be allergic to this if they are allergic to nuts. They need to know what is in them if they have a nut allergy.

These are very easy to make & taste amazing!!! I had to package them as soon as they were cool so I would not eat anymore :)

One of my favorite cookies now. I never tell people that they are coconut because they will not try them, but even sworn coconut haters have loved them once they tried them. The coconut adds sweetness, not a strong coconut flavor. The dough freezes beautifully in rolls. Slice the rolls and you have fresh baked cookies in minutes. These rolls of dough make wonderful gifts and cost a lot less than ready bake cookies from the store.
