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.



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. Enjoy!
