dede,  if you cook them until lightly brown,  they have a nice toasted coconut flavor.

Judy ,  these are very easy.

Chookie how many biscuits did you make?Can I substitute butter for the coconut oil?There's a big charity event in the UK called Comic Relief,their theme is always a Red Nose and I thought these fit the bill with a red cherry in the middle. ;D

CC! I think I made about 100 biscuits. I used a tiny ice-cream scoop.  They were very easy and quick.   I think you easily sob. The oil with butter.
