25 Cent Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Nothing reminds you of home like a good batch of homemade cookies, and nothing is better than making them yourself for a quarter a cookie! Couldn't believe chocolate chip cookies could be made this cheap when I purchased and read the low-income cookbook "Good And Cheap. Eat Well On $4 / Day", but these little dessert bites do not disappoint--all 36-48 of them--crispy, chewy, and a perfect balance of salty-sweet! 

I made a batch without the toasted coconut flakes and a batch with chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and coconut all combined--something for everyone!! Best part of purchasing this cookbook, is that one copy will go to you and another copy will be given to a low-income family or someone struggling on low-income budget!  Thus, your improving your baking skills could make a difference in someone's life!
