I doubled the recipe for my roommate's potluck at work. I did toast the coconut on the stovetop until it was lightly browned. However I didn't have coconut extract on hand,next time. I used a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips but have used chocolate chunks before. My bake time was 11 minutes on the dot. These are super easy to make and got rave reviews from the other who brought something for the potluck. Thanks for the great recipe!

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.
