Great tasting and very easy to make. Warning: when toasting your coconut check it frequently. I found out the hard way that coconut burns very quickly! Read More

These had excellent flavor but they got a bit too crispy. I cooked them just until a bit golden brown - next time I will take them out earlier. Read More
