Let’s end the week on a sweet note! Crispy Coconut-Oatmeal Cookies

When I came across this recipe on Deborah’s blog, Taste and Tell, I immediately got a craving for them.  First of all, I love anything coconut.  Add rice crispies to the mix and you’ve got a serious craving.  I could just imagine what the crispy cereal was going to do to the texture of the cookie.  Well, I got my craving fix…and now I want to share it with all of you!  Beware – they are addicting!
