I think the original recipe came with my mom's first Air-Bake cookie sheet, minus the coconut and definitely *not* gluten free. And I halved the recipe! I can't imagine how many cookies this would've made if I hadn't! ...wait.. yes I can. mmmmmm cookies. These are like real, honest to goodness "normal" sugar cookies. For those of you who don't 'do' gluten, you might not understand. For the rest of us, yes, I'm serious. Real sugar cookies. Only, I didn't use real sugar
