Yields about 3 dozen cookies
all-purpose flour (sifted)
margarine or butter
1In a separate bowl, mix together flour and coconut.
2In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt margarine. Add brown sugar and Karo syrup, and stir until it comes to a low boil and all ingredients have blended together.
3Remove saucepan from heat and gradually stir in flour/coconut mixture. Then add the vanilla.
4Line your cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Drop cookie mixture, by scant teaspoonfuls, about three inches apart on the foil, or paper, lining your pan.
5Bake in a 350 degree oven for @ 10-12". (I like for mine to get lightly browned around the edges, which takes a couple of minutes longer.)
6Remove from oven, and place on rack to cool. These take several minutes - about 5", or so - to cool enough to touch. Peel off of the foil or paper & bake more!
7Warning: These ARE addictive, lol!
