Five stars for simplicty - and Four stars for recipe with alterations! I nearly cut the amount of sugar in half - using only 1 1/3 cup sugar! The cookies were sweet (not too sweet though) - so I believe you can easily use a generous 1 cup sugar without compromising the flavor. I followed the remainder of the recipe as stated. These were VERY simple cookies to make on a whim! I strongly suggest refrigerating the cookies to help them firm/set up properly. My husband loved them and was surprised to see how easy they are to make! NOTE: If you use old-fashioned oats you will need to cook them for at least 4-5 minutes... if you use quick oats then only 1 1/2 minutes. Can also be made with 1/2 cup peanut butter instead of coconut if desired.


Cookies are fantastic but don't boil as long as recipe says. Two minutes is all that is needed.


These are my husband and daughter's favorite "cookies". They are actually somewhere between a cookie and a candy. I only use 1/4 cup (1 stick) of margarine. Also, I agree only two minutes after mixture comes to a boil or you'll have a pan full of crumbs. A yummy treat!
