    I made these today for hubby. He loved them! Absolutely delicious!
    The recipe is very simple, uses few ingredients, and really makes a great cookie. I think this would be wonderful for showers or special times.

    I baked these up this past weekend. Very easy, very sweet and very delish! Next time I’m making them in a smaller pan because they were very thin-ish and my crust was very crumbly, so I’m not sure what I did wrong there.

    But worth the time, very sweet & yummy!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    Suzanne, these are an instant new favorite. Thanks for sharing the recipe. The only thing I did differently was add 1/2 cup brown sugar to the crust before baking it, and a quarter sheet pan with buttered parchment worked out well to bake in. We love the chewy coconut and pecans with the toffee taste and bright citrusy orange. I thought these would be good when I saw the recipe, now I know for sure they are!
