  1. I think on this one it's either you love 'em or you don't. In other words I don't necessarily think this recipe is flawed in any way it's just a matter of personal preference whether or not you like a thin chewy really buttery (bordering greasy) cookie. I don't. (Especially the bordering greasy part) Hubs - Read more ...
  2. HELPFUL TIPS AFTER MAKING IT SEVERAL TIMES: I only tried this because I had all the ingredients and wanted something different. Well, I've now made it 20+ times, and it's always what people rave about at parties. It's amazing how good this tastes. Most adults I know DO NOT like these dunked/topped with chocolate. They - Read more ...
  3. I just wanted to comment about the flatness of this cookie. When you use butter and soda your cookies will flatten out. It is cooking science. These cookies are chewy and coconutty and really good the way the recipe is. If you want your cookies to not flatten you have a couple of options: use - Read more ...
  4. OH MY GOSH, a local restaurant serves delicious coconut cookies that taste like these! I have been looking for the recipe. Baking is like a hobby for me, so after a little tweaking, I think I have created the PERFECT COOKIE for my family! The changes I made were: Increase the vanilla to 1 tsp. - Read more ...
  5. I'm a big cookie baker --everyone loves my cookies-- I tried these and everyone said these were their favorites-- I dipped the cookies in semi-sweet chocolate after I baked them -- tastes just like a Mounds bar
  6. These were very good and the extra 1/4 cup flour is the trick! It could use some extra flavor though. Maybe replacing the vanilla with coconut extract. Mine also didn't come out perfectly round like the picture. Oh well, they still taste good. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside
  7. I thought this recipe was good. After reading the reviews for this recipe, I was scared they'd turn out flat. The recipe says to drop by teaspoonfuls, I used approx. a 2 Tbsp scooper (the med. scoop from Pampered Chef), added a bit more vanilla, sugar, and coconut to the second batch. Turned out perfect. - Read more ...
  8. This recipe was simple, quick, and the cookies are delicious. Next time, I think I will add some chopped macadamia nuts and maybe drizzle a little chocolate over the top. (I used a cookie scoop and only got 23 cookies out of the recipe.If you use a scoop, bake for 13 min.)
  9. If I could give this cookie a 10 I would! These are the most yummy cookies ever! I have never written a review for anything, because of the bother of registering and all, but these were well worth it. I used oil instead of butter... only 1/3 of a cup of oil. And I added - Read more ...
