These were great simple cookies. After the first batch of cookies, I decided the chocolate on top wasn't that crucial and was slightly umberson spreading the chocolate on the very soft cookie top. I left out that step afterward and simply dipped the tops of the cookies in coconut before baking. They looked and tasted the same. I'm definitely saving this recipe to repeat again.
