Coconut Dilema...

Why does packaged coconut always have a nasty after taste. What variety should I buy to avoid that? I made these cookies and they were great except for that.

OATMEAL, COCONUT, CHOCOLATECHIP COOKIE

1 1/4 c. oatmeal
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. flake coconut
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all dry ingredients together in bowl. Then add oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from pan.

I always use Western Family and I've never had any complaints. I'm gonna send you my lime/macadamia nut/ coconut/ oatmeal cookie recipe. It needs a new name, but you'd love it.

In the South they have frozen coconut that is in really good. They need to bring it out West. Or you could try the Western Nut Company, and see what their's is like.
