Wow. These taste amazing, they call for lots of coconut and that is what makes these delicious. I had very flat cookies and am almost positive my baking soda is expired (after reading the helpful reviews, thanks guys!) as I rarely use it. But actually, I was prepared to give these five stars regardless. The butter:flour ratio is a little higher than a lot of recipes I've made, and with all the coconut that translates to a rich, satisfying cookie perfect for coffee/tea/entertaining. I agree these cookies should stand by themselves, I was all set to add a chocolate glaze and toasted almonds on top but they really don't need it. Getting back to the flat thing, that was one of the aspects I liked about them: I will try with fresh baking soda but as I love chewy cookies as opposed to cakelike I might cut down/eliminate it all together. I am no expert baker though, so I'd recommend trying the recipe exactly as written before even thinking about listening to me: it is superb. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
