There are great. Like eating graham crackers and milk. Do I keep them in the frig though or can I keep them on the counter in a tin.

Paula, I have been an admirer from the time you Hit it nationally. I hate that these people think that They can go back 30 yrs or so & make u pay for something That long ago. When are people going to start forgiving The past. If they don't they r just as responsible For the world NOT being a better place for all. Luv Ya Girl. Hope to see you soon! Your Friend! Paula D.

These look Good...But...I don't care for Coconut. Can anything be used in it's place? I'd love to try them.

Hi, Paula, You might take my Southern card away from me for saying this, but I don't like pecans. Could you use almonds, hazelnuts or peanuts for this instead? These cookies look yummy otherwise, and I'd love to try them! Love you, Paula! Kay W
