Reviews for Jumbo Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
"Delicious! Everyone ate them up in no time flat."
"Great texture and these cookies freeze well!"
"Oh my gosh. This has to be the best cookie I have ever eaten and I do love cookies. There is a famous bakery here in New York called Levain Bakery. This cookie ranks right up there with theirs. It is Huge, chewy, buttery, and if you like coconut, which I do, you will not find a better cookie EVER!!!!!!Still soft and chewy if there are any left two days later."
"this are so good. I just cant tell you. thanks so much for sharing.. love love love these.."
"It was recommended to me to add, 2 cups of Semi Sweet Choc Chips, 1 cup of Oatmeal and 1 tsp. of Cinnamon. Then for dipping, use Baker's White chocolate and add 1 Tbsp of Crisco to help make it harden. They turned out wonderful."
"This is my families favorite cookies. Instead of dipping I add white chips in the cookies, I also add toffee chips. My family like them thicker so I add 1/2 cup extra flour."
"these cookies are by far the best i have ever had, let alone made!!"
"These really are the best cookies! They are so chewy very easy to make."
"THESE ARE THE BEST COOKIES! I made these for a cookies exchange and it was a HIT wit the moms. They were a little flat, I perfer thick so I added 1/2 cup of flour and they were perferct. I didn't dip and all still enjoyed. Try these you will be glad you did and it was easy to make!"
