A happy accident! Making cookies for a family party, I didn't have enough coconut, so I substituted some raisins. The results were so good the family still asks for them, including my father-in-law. He doesn't even like coconut!

A really great cookie! These are very soft and delicious. I used white flour and substituted rasins with walnuts. Yum Yum Yum

These were absolutely delicious! I added in some wheat germ and some flaxseed meal and used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose/white. My kiddos love it, I love's a winner! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

these were pretty good. i used chocolate chips instead of raisons and threw in a few walnuts. there was too much coconut for my taste but maybe its just me. good shaped cookie and good chewiness though. would be good with cinnamon too!
