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 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.


These cookies are really good and easy to make. It's perfect for all you coconut lovers. :)I used a half teaspoon of salt. Enjoy!
