Mimi's Favorite Ranger Cookies

Another recipe that is found all over the web. This is just the way I make them. My son doesn't like coconut so I told him all the ingredients, except for the coconut. He ate several cookies before he found out about the coconut. Now he calls these the "Cookies of Deception" LOL. I wasn't into coconut myself, not until I had these cookies. I am very fond of it now. This makes a lot of cookies, but they don't last very long around here.
