The Cooky Book: Oatmeal Coconut Crispies
The Recipe: Oatmeal Coconut Crispies from Betty Crocker's The Cooky Book
The Substitutions: Butter for shortening
The Verdict: Surprisingly awesome. I was afraid that these were going to be another exercise in dullness, but they're really really good. The texture and consistency (and for the most part, the taste) is reminiscent of Dad's brand oatmeal cookies, or at least that's what my tastebud memory is telling me (obviously, I don't buy a lot of store-bought cookies). Which means that they're crunchy and hard, rather than soft and tender. And this is just fine with me, because that extra crunch translates into coconutty deliciousness.
