What to Expect

These cookies will puff up quite a bit and be almost cake like. Add a dollop of whip cream, drizzle some caramel across the top, add some nuts if you so choose, shredded coconut would be delightful. They are delicious, puffy and wonderfully tropic. A special note these cookies are best fresh and have a shelf life of around 3 days. Keep that in mind if you choose to adjust for a larger or smaller batch.

I added some craisians to some chocolate chips to others, a few almonds in a couple just to try it out. All worked all were good, so go for it!
