Been looking for a gooey coconut cookie for a while and this is the one. Substituted dried cranberries for the raisins and added much less cinnamon(1/2 tsp). They turned out great!

Mixture was too dry so I added an egg white. Mine baked 8 minutes, perfect time but they were still kinda dry after they cooled. They were just okay, not bad, but not something I'd make again.

These cookies are fantastic. I replaced the raisins with chocolate chips, which I would definitely recommend. Soft and chewy and delicious!

I made these with half the amount of sugar that was called for and added some apple sauce to add the sweetness and a little moisture back into the dough. I also chopped up some dried apricots and prunes that I had on hand instead of the rasins and it came out excellent. The cookie was not overly sweet and the dried fruit added a little more to each bite.

There was not enough liquid to hold these together, so I added water to the batter. It worked, and these were tasty. I probably won't make them again though.

Great cookies! I substituted chocolate chips for the raisins and didn't put any glaze on them. I definately recommend these! They did take about 15 minutes to cook instead of 8, but they are wonderful; sightly crispy edges with a soft chewy inside. Delicious!

These cookies were awesome! I had to add about 1/4 cup of water to the batter to make it more dough-like. I added chocolate chips instead of raisins and they came out AWESOME. Huge hit with all my friends! They were chewy and moist! The recipe calls for "egg sized" heaps of dough, so they are MASSIVE cookies. I liked that about the cookies, but obviously some people might want to ration out the dough a little more with smaller sized dollops of dough. Not over-powering coconut taste which I liked too!

Very good, I didn't add any raisins, and it turned out pretty well. Thanks.
