HELPFUL TIPS AFTER TRYING SEVERAL TIMES: What a unique twist and pleasant change to a traditional chocolate chip cookie (which Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie is the best). This is definitely chewy due to the coconut which adds to the pleasure of eating this. I recommend 1.5C of coconut, 3/4C butter (the 2 extra T isn't necessary), 1/2C of pecans (they're softer than walnuts which is why I wouldn't substitute), and I used a medium scoop which produced 30 cookies at 10 min. I am not sure why some users had trouble with the oven temperature because it's perfect. I'm thinking they cooked a lot longer or made teeny weeny sized cookies.


These cookies are great!!! I measured the butter out in a cup and it works out to be, 3/4 cup plus 2tbsps. Hope this helps.


After one bite of these cookies I thought ewww, too sweet, too gooey. I hate to review these and be the voice of dissent to all the rave reviews--I'll wait till hubs gets home and see what HE thinks. When I saw him get a glass of milk I already thought I knew the answer. And then he said, "Ooooh, these are good--sweet and gooey. This is the kind of cookie I could eat till I get sick." Guess that answers why I gave these a four star rating rather than three...
