Was trying to find an easy recipe to make for a tailgate and came across this one. I doubled the recipe right off the bat. Cookies turned out very well and were very tasty - soft, but also chewy, especially the next day. This is a keeper recipe for me.

These cookies are good! I tend to use half butter and half shortening for my cookies, and I did so for this recipe as well. I also cut back the sugar by 1/8 cup, as I was using sweetened coconut. (use 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons). Very delicious!

I did not have enough coconut, so I used half a cup of coconut and half a cup of chopped dates. The cookies are wonderful. We will eat them up in no time!! Very sweet, just like the name says.
