So, I was looking forward to trying these Coconut Balls which are the same cookie, really. But coconut replaces the pecans. And . . . while the flavor was good . . . these cookies seemed dry to me. Instead of a melt-in-your-mouth tenderness, I felt the saliva being sucked out of my mouth. I'm not sure if it was the coconut or the cookie recipe that did it. I'd probably have to play with the recipe to see. Don't get me wrong. I still ate them. All of them. But I'm not sure I'd make them again.
I think I'll still with my favorite recipe for Mexican Wedding Cakes.
