Outstanding! Chewy on the inside, crisp on the outside. Perfectly sweet and flavorful. The ONLY thing I would recomend doing differently is adding a bit more coconut. I would suggest making 1 3/4 - 2 inch inch balls and flattening them out a bit, then they do the rest of the work themselves! I used pecans and they turned out great. My family, friends, and I gobbled them up in 4 days. I would definetly recommend trying these!

I guess these were not what I was expecting. Number one I couldn't get the "creamy" butter and sugar mixture and maybe that is why they went wrong from the start! I found that they baked quickly and I had to turn my oven way down.

These cookies tasted really good. They are a little difficult to roll into balls and they do not spread in the oven, so you must flatten them before baking, but all in all a pretty good recipe that I will probably make again.

These cookies ended up very cakey and fell apart. The flavor is okay, but doesn't make up for the poor texture.

Very good. I didn't mix everything in the right order b/c I didn't read ahead and it still turned out really well. I was trying to duplicate some cookies from our work cafeteria. I used Lindt white chocolate bars chopped up and they made it taste amazing. Bigger pieces of macadamia nuts work well. A little hard to form balls from the dough but very worth making.

These were good, but not great. The one reviewer was right they do not form easily, but they also do not spread at all in the oven. I added 1/4 cup water and 2 more tablespoons of flour because the mix was way too dry and was so crumbly I could form it at all, but after adding water and more flour it was easier. When rolling into a ball also flatted it in your hand to form a cookie because it you don't you will get a cooked cookie ball instead of a normal cookie. The cookies were still a bit too dry for me even after adding water. This recipe definatley needs work and I really don't want to be the one to do it. I'll try another recipe next time. Oh well.

These cookies are great! The browned butter gives them a really special flavor, my family asks for these a lot!

I have two sons away at college and they constantly ask me to send them these cookies. They sell them for .75c apiece. They love them.
