I made these cookies for a good friend of mine. On a recent trip to Florida she found these delectable Calypso cookies at Publix Bakery which is a popular chain in the South. They are oatmeal based with coconut and pecans. She wanted to recreate these cookies and asked if I would give it a try. After researching online I found many copycat recipes with which to work with. Now I have to say I’m not really a coconut person and usually avoid it but after trying these cookies I was pleasantly surprised. The flavors are well balanced without the strong coconut flavor that usually overwhelms me. I think they taste pretty close to the original Publix cookies. Let me know what you think!
