I have to admit I goofed a little bit with the recipe. I didn’t follow the rolling instructions properly, partially because I didn’t have a gallon bag and also because I was making half a batch, and rolled the cookies a little too thin. And since they spread quite a bit when they bake, it actually kind of mattered, and it resulted in tiny, little wisps of cookies. I think the cookies looked sort of like snowflakes. The ones that didn’t burn, that is. And they tasted pretty good.
This recipe gets a 6 for Deliciousness and a 3 for Effort, giving it an EDR of 2. Many thanks Jayne of The Barefoot Kitchen Witch for giving me a chance to bring a bag of coconut into the house and actually getting Mr. Penpen to admit he enjoyed a coconut treat – more coconut confections from my kitchen in the future! If you would like the recipe, you can find it on Jayne’s site. And be sure to check out the Tuesdays With Dorie site to see the other bakers’ cookies, since I don’t think mine looked quite the way they were supposed to.
