I can see why this is a favorite, excellent recipe. I cut the sugar back to 8 ozs and used unsweetened, medium coconut. Don't do what I did! I used lightly greased floured Foil on the cookie sheet and Uh Oh It was a little tought getting them off. On a solid cookie sheet it would have been no problem, Thanks Eve
