Coconut Dream Cookies

Coconut Dream Cookies

After making a lovely coconut cream pie, I had some coconut left and thought I should put it to good use in cookies.  I added some oats and chocolate chips of course and voila a very tasty cookie.  They are so good, I can’t stop eating them, I need an intervention or something.  These would be a really great Valentine’s treat or just perfect for days like today when you have extra coconut nagging at you to be baked.
