Note-- I got this recipe from "Sugar Pie Farmhouse blog". She said you can freeze half of the dough if you don't want to make them all at once. Roll it in a log shape, wrap it up in saran wrap and freeze and use when needed.  you can also substitute the nuts, chips and coconut for something else you might like better.
