These aren't that great and don't taste coconutty. It tastes like a chewy sugar cookie with texture. I found them to be too sweet if using sweetened shredded coconut. Decrease the sugar by half in this case. To make the batter easier to work with, it needs a couple of tablespoons of milk plus 1 tsp of coconut extract. Then they are greatly improved.
Delicious and incredibly easy! It is quite a soft cookie - almost like a cross between a biscuit and a cake but really really nice and very professional tasting! I followed the recipe exactly though my dough wasn't dropping consistency so I made little balls of dough and just pressed them with my hands to get a biscuit shape. They looked good and quite professional! Thanks!
Delectable! A nice soft cookie, with good coconut flavor. I did add about a 1/4 cup cream of coconut, as suggested by another reviewer and it brought the dough together nicely. My cookies needed 11 minutes, but that may be an oven variation. I'd like to try these cookies with a bit of almond extract, some mini chocolate chips and perhaps some slivered toasted almonds.
