These cookies are wonderful. I did add the coconut and it just added something extra to the flavor. It is a wonderful cookie. I took them out of the oven after 10 minutes. I entered them in the Pennsylvania Maple Festival in Meyersdale and took 1st place with this recipe.

I liked this recipe a lot. I did add a 1/2 tsp of maple flavoring and some precooked bacon.. Made the recipe even better... yummm!

A nice, simple, basic cookie. Nothing special, just a very plain cookie. Easy and quick to make. Not too sweet and the coconut adds a pleasant nuttiness that compliments the maple taste. I would highly recommend adding the coconut.
