"If you love coconut, MAKE THESE!!! The only thing I added, although they are sinfully wonderful as the recipe states, is I added a teaspoon of coconut extract along with the egg. Making a double batch today!"
"Great cookies!!! They are on the list as a new family favorite! Great to have in the freezer and just bake up a dozen at a time...not that two or three dozen wouldn't get gobbled up fast!"
"I didn't make these, but I did eat some that I got at a bake sale and begged for the recipe. They are soooo good. Can't wait to make them."
