Sweet, buttery and chewy - the perfect combination for a delicious cookie! We especially loved the crunch from the coconut and cereal. These are extremely easy to make, so perfect to make with the kids. These went fast in the Test Kitchen ... so make sure to stash a few for yourself before they're gone.
