Coconut Butterscotch Cookies

Melynda Camp Recipe

By Melynda Camp tomgan1515

These are a favorite of my 5 year old son. They make several dozen, and they normally don't last for more than a day and a half, maybe two. (If i wasn't watching, they wouldn't last two hours.) He is my toughest critic, so I'm hoping you like them as much as he does.
