Beautiful Monday Morning Sun Rise at 8 A.M. this morning.

Friday was cookie day. Looking at this picture it is hard to believe there are 47 cookies in this jar.
These are my husbands favorite. Very crispy, just the way he likes them.
I only had about 1-1/4 c coconut, so I added 3/4 c oat bran, and they turned out pretty good.
