I decided to make these for DH because he loves coconut. I had a horrible time with this one, but not really for fault of the recipe. It was certainly simple to mix up, but then the trouble started. :( First the parchment paper managed to catch fire in the oven, set off the fire alarms and filled the house with smoke, and the cookies completely stuck to the paper, resulting in paper-bottomed cookies. Then the chocolate glaze I'd decided to dip them in turned grainy for some reason and refused to set up. After going into the bedroom and having a good 8-month-pregnancy induced emotional breakdown, I promptly returned and ate 5 of them. Overall, they are quick and easy to make and taste good, but lacking in some flavor -- maybe almond extract would be a good addition? Also, since they won't spread, I think it would be good to flatten them a bit and not leave them as rounded golf balls on the tray so the middles will cook more. After all this, DH was nice enough to tell me they taste good, but not outstanding, so no need to make them again since there are many others things that I make that are much better.
