MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2014

Very good! I might cook them a little less next time though. I like my cookies to be soft.

These are sooo yummy. I'm asked to make them all the time. I use different nuts sometimes but still fantastic.

I bought this amazing coconut chocolate chip cookie at a bakery in the Phoenix airport and wanted to try to replicate it at home. This recipe was definitely a winner. I received so many compliments on the cookies. If I make it again I would have to plan on giving some away or else I would eat them all!

MY REVIEW

We love Cowboy cookies in my family-we've made several different versions. I must say this is one of the best ones. We love coconut, so next time I will add more. My husband doesn't like nuts, so we add butterscotch chips instead. LOVE!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 18, 2013

With all the sugar, they are very sweet. I made them with 1/2 semi-sweet and 1/2 white chocolate. I didn't have pecans, so I used walnuts. If you use a small cookie scoop, (I have the Pampered Chef small scoop) you will get about 8 1/2 dozen.
