#12 - Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

These cookies are so darn delicious. I tried to follow a recipe but ended up making my own since the required ingredients were absent from my pantry. Sometimes impromptu replacement ingredients work better. Anyway, Dre's eyes lit up when he saw me take these out of the oven, so I made him a plate with skim milk. I love that he loves my cooking.
