I married into some of the best cookies I've had. Each Christmas, my mother and sister in law make batches upon batches of delicious cookies. The secret family recipe is my husband's late great grandmother's. They are laced with coconut flakes and oats and are oh so crispy. I am not usually a crispy cookie kind of person, but these are really something else.
in-law (I really don't like that term) had the whole kitchen set up for a morning of baking. I can't take the credit for these cookies, because I really didn't help much. I assumed the job of taste testing while talking their ears off and taking pictures. I did bring the butter, that counts as helping, right? Can't make cookies without delicious butter!
