NOTHING LIKE THE HOLIDAYS! COCONUT ROUNDS
Why I Love This Recipe
The Star Trek Fan Club to which I belong has a yearly cookie run.
We make different kinds of cookies for the fire fighters of our county
and for proper authorities of our city. I once made these cookies for
that purpose and for my family, too. Quite a tastey twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookies!

1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 cup white sugar
