Recipe Tips

- If dough becomes too sticky, chill 15 minutes or until it is easy to handle.

- To measure coconut, place coconut in bowl. Separate lumps with hands. Place into measuring cups; do not pack.

- Unopened coconut in plastic bags can be stored up to 6 months at room temperature. Leftover coconut can be stored in container with tight-fitting lid in refrigerator or freezer.

I did just what it said but did not put the white baking chips and it came out so dry and just plain blah....

Loved these. They have a great texture and are super easy to make. They also make a great presentation. I recommend getting a cookie scoop for these. They come out perfectly like that. Also, make a double batch, they will go quickly.

I've made these cookies for the past 3 years and everyone just loves them! I triple the recipe because they go on all the cookies trays I gift over the Holidays. Best of all, they're so simple to make.
