I just finished making these for my Christmas cookie trays and followed the directions exactly. they are light, fluffy and chewy. YUMMY!! I will add a cherry on top and drizzle with melted chocolate for a festive flair.

I dunno if I did something wrong ar if I just didn't care for these. They came out too chewy, but when I tried to cook them longer they just darkened, but stayed the same gooey, chewy consistancy. My mom and my husband thought that they were tastey, with a light coconuty taste. I guess it was just me...

This is pretty good : ) I ran out of vanilla extract, so I excluded it from the recipe and it still tasted great.
