    You won't have problems with these being too gooey if you allow them to boil for approximately 2.5 minutes. I didn't stir during boiling time. For variation these are good with dry roasted peanuts and raisins, too. Yummy treat, Diana, thanks.  -  03 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these alot when I was a kid. To make things even faster we would spead out 4 or 5 sheets of wax paper and put and put 1/4 or more on each paper and roll them into logs. We would put them into the fridge right away and they would set quickly. After a few hours you unroll the log and cut into pieces. My kids love them because they are so easy for them to make and eat.  -  14 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love these cookies. I made 1-1/2 batches yesterday afternoon and they are already gone. (I'm not going to tell you who ate them all *smile*). I didnt' even bother making these into was eaten right out of the pan. I didn't add the coconut because I didn't have any. And when I do have chopped pecans, I like to throw a handful of them in. Diana...I too know this recipe by heart since I make these so much. Thanks for your submission. OH..and I do add a spoonful of Peanut Butter.  -  12 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
