Reviews for Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
"Very good. I just made two batches -- one as written, and one with walnuts and vanilla instead of coconut. If anything, there is just a bit too much chocolate, almost hiding the coconut. I'll cut it to 4 ounces next time, and think I'll find that just about perfect."
"Yummy! Just made these and gave my husband one right out of the oven...only problem he had was that the rest of these are going to my father for Father's Day. I guess I will have to make another batch sometime for my husband!"
"Love this recipe. It taste so good.I use brown sugar and my home made no sugar added coconut flake and it turn out great!!For some people who have problem with expanded or flat cookies, try put the dough in fridge 30 minutes before scoop them.I did it and mine look great!!!"
"I'm in love with coconut and these are great! I'm glad I looked at the reviews and decided to go ahead and buy the coconut extract instead of settling for vanilla! But, I found they were a little salty, so I'm ommitting salt in future use! Loved these though!!!!"
"Do yourself a favor and hunt down coconut extract. Ours was found at Trader Joes. I made them using vanilla extract and they were not nearly as good. But with coconut exttract, they are AMAZING,! I could scarf down the entire batch.Update: I've started substituting brown sugar for some of the white sugar, about half and half. The cookies come softer and chewier. I'd recommend trying them that way too if you like a chewier rather than crisper cookie."
"Loved these! Didn't have coconut extract, but used vanilla extract and coconut flakes and still tasted great. Very simple and quick to make. This has become one of my family's favorite cookie!"
"I brought these to work. Everyone loved them and asked for the recipe. I always cook with Parkay instead of butter, and I added pecans, but walnuts would be good, too. We think all cookies taste better with nuts!"
"Instead of Chocolate Chips I used chocolate chunks equally as good and with a little extra sugar this recipe is really good!"
"Nice taste. Liked the way the baked, turning brown all over at the same time. Used White chocolate and it would have tasted better using some Macadamia nuts."
"good vor coconut lovers"
"I have not made this cookies yet but I had a problem with flat cookies,(spread out too much). I fixed the problem by using 1/2 crisco half butter. J Sill"
"Update - I did my own calculations for calories and my recipe actually made 29 cookies so cookies only had 108 calories a piece. Better, but still high. Maybe because I made my cookies smaller than what the directions called for my cookies were thinner? Still wouldn't make again."
"Cookies were thin and crispy, not chewy at all. The color resembled that of the photo, but still very disappointed in the outcome and won't be making again. Also, I didn't realize before hand the calorie content, wow!"
"I am a very experience baker and I am very disappointed in this recipe. They stick to the pan terribly, so one pan was ruined. I used a Silpat and they came out without difficulty and looked "close" to the picture, although flatter. Even with parchment paper, the cookies stuck. All my ingredients were top quality and fresh, so there is no reason for this recipe to FLOP so dramatically - PANCAKE cookies."
"They were good, but they spread out way too much and all joined together so that they aren't really cookie-shaped, but squarish and very thin. Maybe there is too much butter and that made them melt outwards too much? I'm going to try them again, but this time I am going to try putting in more flour to stiffen them up a bit."
