Stuff your face with deliciousness! I made these for a friend's birthday party and they were a huge hit. There were only four of us and they were gone in seconds! For a different taste, sprinkle salt over cookies when cooled.

Coconut-Pecan Cookies

Rating: Unrated
This is a buttery coconut-pecan cookie. The crunch comes from the pecans and coconut, but the cookie itself is chewy. I do not add salt to this recipe, as I think with salted butter enough salt is present.
