These are a coconut rolled and chilled, sliced cookie, But these are "oh so good", and look so nice on any cookie tray.
I use the Coconut Flavoring and they are so flavorful.

Hint; I also glaze the tops with just a hint of Rum or butter flavored Glaze, these are desired by all who see and taste these.

Note: the prep time below is with out the Chill time, of 2-24 hrs.
