"These chewy coconut cookies can be dipped in melted chocolate, but are just as good without the chocolate. They keep for up to a week if kept in an airtight container." — Neeky

My family and I found these to be the best coconut cookies. I had bought the coconut for my Christmas cookie the usuall macaroon. but I forgot the can milk needed to make them I jumped on to all recipes and as usuall it saved my day and a trip to the store.
I whipped the eggs and sugar in my mixer till they were a lemon color. they came out great.
If you are looking for "fried coconut eggs", this is your recipe. There was absolutely no resemblance to a cookie whatsoever. It was a real mess. I added about a cup of flour to the mixture, and it baked up like cookies (15 minutes), but then they were dry.
Not bad - I wonder if the author made a mistake in the recipe - the ingredients say 2 eggs, but the instructions mention "the egg". I tried it with 2 eggs first, looked really sloppy so threw that batch away and made a 2nd batch using just one egg - turned out good.
Try using an electric wisk it makes the eggs and sugar more fluffy and add additional coconut and walnuts(optional)to make the cookies a little bit thicker.
I was really Disappointed in this COOKIE!!! It spread really bad and didnt even form a cookie!!! it tasted more like a fortune cookie then a coconut mountain!!! I Would Never Do This Cookie Again...
I'm gonna go with the middle rating, but unfortunately, I had the same miserable experience as some of the other reviewers. However, I believe I must have done something wrong. If other people made it and it came out good, it must be possible. Firstly, I think I had a scant cup of coconut. Secondly, I had a large egg. Mine weren't quite as runny as the others (maybe they had JUMBO eggs?). But they still made a disaster of my cookie sheets and only held up in the center. I'd probably make sure I had enough coconut, and use a medium egg if I made them again. I'm not sure I wouldn't just try a different recipe first though. Shame - they seem to have potential... if you can figure them out.
I ended up adding an additional 2-3 cups of coconut, baked them a little longer and they were a complete hit.
Having a late night sweet tooth and only a few ingredients I opted to give these "cookies" a try despite the somewhat negative reviews. I only used one egg and I spruced it up by adding some chopped almonds and semi-sweet white chocolate chips. they turned out AMAZING!
