These cookies couldn't have been ORDERED to turn out more perfectly. They're thick and chewy, buttery rich and coconut-oaty. They're nicely, uniformly shaped and come out of the oven just as you always cross your fingers and hope they will when you try a new cookie recipe. I was tempted to add some coconut extract and am glad I didn't. I did add chocolate-covered, candy-coated sunflower seeds and wish I hadn't. They sure dressed up the cookie but I think they would have been better without. No nit-picking allowed on this recipe like "more of this or less of that." This recipe has "perfect" down pat.
This is an easy to make cookie recipe, however it is not a favorite of mine. I found it too sweet and a bit bland. Perhaps it would be better with cinnamon, nuts and/or chocolate chips. Using a 1 1/4 inch cookie scoop, I got 7 dozen cookies out of this recipe.
I've been looking for just this recipe. It is almost like a cookie I remember from a neighborhood bakery in the 60's. I added large pieces of pecans and a little salt and these cookies are delicious
These cookies are really good and easy to make.
It's perfect for all you coconut lovers. :)I used a half teaspoon of salt.
Very good. So many people, it seems, have to have strong flavors, thus they have to add chocolate or nuts. I enjoy the delicate flavor of these cookies just as the recipe is written.
these are the best coconut cookies we've ever had!
Awesome cookie recipe! I scaled it down to make 12 servings and I still got almost 50 little 1 inch raw dough balls that came out to perfectly sized baked cookies. What I did to modify the recipe was add 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts and about 1 cup white chocolate chips and I baked them for only 10 mintues and left them on the pan for another 2. SO YUMMY! I think that next time, though, I will add even more coconut as I love that stuff and think that coconut flavor, while very tasty, was a little too subtle.
Another 70's child checking in. These are the tastes of my childhood! My grandmother rarely bakes these days and now it's time for me to relive those days of yore. These cookies are WONDERFUL! Served up with a cup of coffee or a spot of tea, these will be a hit at any table, even if it is a table for one. Yummy!
