I like these cookies, they just didn't have much flavor without tweaking the recipe, and they were too sweet for my taste. I used sweetened coconut cause I couldn't find unsweetened (darn you, podunk grocery stores), and cut the white sugar to half a cup. Next time I will use unsweetened coconut AND cut the sugar. I also threw in some dark chocolate chips (which were good), but next time I will use white because I think the flavor will be more complementary. I didn't have problems with flattening, mine came out soft and pillow-y. I made the balls a heaping tsp, and baked for 8min 30sec to 9 minutes. My oven timer goes by minute increments only so the 8 min 30 sec chained me to the kitchen in perpetual count-down mode. But leaving the kitchen with cookies in the oven gives me separation anxiety anyway, so it worked out fine!
