I was looking for a new cookie recipe this year and went through our family cookbook. I saw this recipe which had my mom and her friend Sharon as the author. I don’t remember it, but boy it sounded delicious. I had it on my ‘want to try’ list.
But, my sister SuZ beat me to it, and she wound up making them for Christmas. And boy were they yummy! She cooked them a little longer since she wanted a nuttier toasted coconut taste. I’m sure the original baking time will taste and look more like the classic Mounds, but boy I loved that toasted coconut flavor.
I don’t know what more I can say except thank you to my Mom and Sharon for a new favorite.
