Coconut Chocolate Chip Lace Cookies

Copyright 2011 Christine's Pantry. All rights reserved.


If your kids are like mine, the first thing they want after school is a snack. When I was a kid, I looked forward to the after school snack. My mother knew how to bake, and she was a good baker. We always had homemade snacks. I would grab a few cookies from the cookie jar, then walk around the kitchen to see what else mom was baking. Y'all know that saying “got caught with my hands in the cookie jar”, well that was me. I always had my hands in the cookie jar. Mom started calling me the cookie monster.  - Giggle -

I always had my friends over after school. There was a trail of kids walking threw the front door. Looking for goodies. They knew mom was always baking something. And the kitchen was always smelling good.

  16. This looks good. It is unusual for a cookie to call for oil but I like it. I don't use butter often.
