These cookies are so easy, chewy and tasty. I love coconut, so for me they are a real winner. They are crispy at the edges and chewy through the centre. Delicious! This morning with the rain (again) and a holiday Monday here, my son helped me make these. So easy. All done in a few minutes and then you can just pop them in the oven. From start to eating in less than 15 minutes. I call that quick and easy!
Chopped nuts would make a nice variation in these cookies, or even raisins or chocolate chips. Anything for that matter. Next time I think I will add chopped walnuts as they are possibly my favourite nut in a cookie.
