i left it in the over longer...till it was golden brown..and it was deeeeelicious..very crunchy and tasty...the next time i do it, i would prolly use only 1 egg...cause the flour curdled a little...but a definite healthy recipe ~

I decided to make this recipe for my family and at first it came out all runny because I forgot to include wax paper. But I recooked them and they turned out great. My parents and my brother liked them, and they looked chewy but they were crunchy :3

This year I made these cookies first. When I asked the family what other cookies they wanted each of them said "There is no other cookie only THESE cookies" I had to make 4 batches before they would let me give any away.

I made some alterations. I only used 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 of a 16 oz bag of marsh mallows that I cut into small pieces. I added spices like 1 teaspoon of ginger, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and I added 1 medium size bag of sliced almonds , and the whole 14oz bag of grated coconut. I put a heaping tablespoon of the mixture in muffin tins and baked them for 40 mins. at 250 degrees F, because coconut burns at high heat.
