Personal Notes:
Mom made these every year for Christmas & everyone loved them. She would bake many types of cookies & pack in large sealed cans to share with everyone. These cookies get better with time so can start your Christmas cookie baking with these first. She would decorate some with green & red sprinkles while leaving some with the beautiful golden brown coconut to shine !!!
