Here's another great recipe from Donna. You can tell how much fun she had making these cookies, can't you?
1 cup packed
1 stick of butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup coconut
Beat brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cocoa,pecans. Stir into butter mixture to form stiff dough. Sprinkle coconut on hard working surface. Divide dough in 4 parts. Shape each into a log about 1 1/2 inches thick and about 5 to 7 inches long. Roll in coconut and Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour or up to 2 days. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut rolls into 1/8 inch slices; place ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes (Mine our done at 10). remove to wire racks to cool.
Enjoy!!! Makes about 5- 6 dozen small cookies.
