“Every time I make this cookie, I think of my Grandpa. It was his favorite cookie. He loved anything with coconut. I think I got this recipe out of an old church cookbook. I have made this cookie for nearly 30 years. I'm not sure of the amount of cookies this recipe makes. I never really count them. I think I can get about 3 dozen. It all depends on how much cookie dough you drop off of your spoon.”
36 cookies
