Jackie Ruckwardt of Cottage Grove, Oregon writes, "These gourmet cookies are my 'most asked for' recipe." Chockfull of coconut and chocolate chips and dipped in white candy coating, they are truly a chocolate-lover's delight.

    These cookies are amazing. My friends frequently request that i make them. I do not dip them is white chocolate since they are so good without it. i also omit the 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips and add pecans. If I don't plan to share the cookies, I use a cookie dough scoop to shape the remaining dough into balls and freeze the dough for another time.

    Delicious cookie. I followed the recipe exactly, but I did make them smaller. I used 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop and they still came out pretty big!! My hubby loves white chocolate and he said these were awesome!

    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.

    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.
