"From looking at the ingredients, my guess is that it is not enough flour to keep these cookies together. 1/2c flour does not sound like near enough!"

"Haven't made them, wondered why they fell apart when you picked them up!"

"This is hard to rate, FIVE stars for flavor TWO because I had a BIG problem here. Right out of the oven, they're great. Look like the picture, are crisp and tasty. I put a plate out for company, and couldn't figure out why people said "hmm, interesting, love coconut" etc. Later I tested one, it could barely be picked up, just fell apart. Either I did something wrong or something is missing from the recipe to bind them together."
