For an extra special treat, toast the flaked coconut before you use it in this recipe. These delicious cookies melt in your mouth. I've been making them for years, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. I dare you to only eat one. I bet you can't, these lovely cookies are addictive. This recipe is from my old Land O’Lakes cookbook.
