Dad's cookiesI love a good chewy cookie. I love oats and I love coconut. Dad’s cookies have all three.

Dad’s cookies is a recipe from the recipe box I inherited from my mother. I have know idea where the recipe originated from or why its called Dad’s cookies. I do know however, that they taste great.

Dad’s cookies also freeze extremely well.

Just make sure to allow the dough balls to thaw a bit before cooking so that you can squish the cookies with the back of a fork before placing them in the oven.
