I took the advice of other reviewers who only boiled for two minutes and greatly disliked the results - the cookies came out very gooey and sticky. I made another batch and boiled for 4-5 minutes as per the recipe, and they came out just as I wanted them. So I guess some people like theirs a different consistency - if you like them gooey, boil for less time; if you like them more like a macaroon cookie, drier and crumblier, then boil for longer.
I also reduced the amount of sugar to 1 and a half cups, and reduced the oats to 2 and a half while increasing the coconut to a full cup (I like them more like a macaroon). Next time I may tweak the oats and coconut even further. But in any case, they were delicious, and I'm glad to have a go-to recipe for these at last.
