man, i was craving something good to go with a pot of hot coffee today. i still had coconut left over from the coconut biscotti, so i was trying to figure out what i could make. i also only had a 1/2 stick of margarine, poo, not even butter. no matter, i threw some basic ingredients together and ta-dah(the man said ta-dah), i had cookies. actually, i had some pretty dang tasty cookies. they turned out sweet, chewy and coconut-y, perfect with my cuppa coffee. enjoy.
