family and friends couldn't believe I made these addictive and perfect cookies

These cookies are fantastic. I do not really care for coconut, but that flavor and texture did not really come through in this cookie. I made these as a bar cookie and had 96 little bites. I took them to work and they were gone very, very quickly. Absolutely a keeper!

Delicious cookies! I used coconut extract, only 1 cup coconut, but added 1/2 cup of vanilla chips. Also because there are only two of us--I froze dough balls of these cookies and bake up (frozen) how ever many I need.

Really good cookies. Made a few changes. Replaced 1 tsp. of the vanilla extract with 1 tsp. coconut extract. Also I used 2 cups of coconut and only 1 cup of oats. Didn't have walnuts so I used toasted pecans. Everyone loved them. Thanks!

These are wonderful cookies. I use pecans rather than walnuts. They disappear very quickly. They are my grandson's favorite!

I made these cookies about a week ago. They are good, especially if you like coconut, and nuts, which I do. I would give them a good rating.
