MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2014

"These cookies taste great and I will definitely make them again. Omitting the coconut and substituting raisins worked really well. The only thing I will do differently next time is to chill the dough for a few hours before baking, because the cookies spread out way too much and were flat with overly browned edges."

"Delicious. The only thing I did different was omit the coconut and use 1 cup raisins. Husband loved them also."
