I thought they were too sweet, possibly because if the coconut. I used sweetened since the recipe didn't specify.

Uniquely delicious combination of ingredients---easy to make. People were reluctant to try them, but then came back for seconds after tasting one. Easy to make, too!

These were okay. Really kind of boring. Not sure the sweet potato added anything.

Very good, but very sweet! One or two was more than enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. This will be a great cookie to make for all the upcoming holiday parties. I didn't have any OJ concentrate, so I used 1 T. orange extract and 2 T. water.

Kids, husband and coworkers love it. The only thing I changed-instead of orange concentrate I used orange zest from 1 large orange

These are sooo delicious! I followed the recipe except I used orange juice instead of concentrate because that's only what I had. Still an outstanding cookie and one of our most favorite. Try them!

Have made this recipe several times and have had rave reviews. I make w whole wheat pastry flour instead of white and add extra butterscotch chips. Fabulous!!!!!!! Super buttery and rich.
