A wonderful sweet, chewy and tropical cookie with a hint of coffee. I originally tried this recipe just so I could use up some leftover coconut milk, but I ended up enjoying it so much I will now buy coconut milk in order to make these cookies! The original recipe (from a coffee enthusiast's home page!) called for 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, but I find I'm happy with one - do experiment to see if you prefer less or more! I've also found that the flour-coconut ratio is quite forgiving: I've used only 1/2 cup of coconut and made up the difference with extra flour with beautiful results.
