This new (to me) batch of dough is in my 'fridge, ready to bake tomorrow morning. I can't wait to taste the results.
NUTTY COCONUT COOKIES
Greased sheets -- 325* -- 18 to 20 minutes -- 4 1/2 dozen (dough looks like a lot more than 4 1/2 dozen!!)
I always use parchment and never worry about greasing a cookie sheet.

2/3 cups sugar

gradually beating continually.
