Made these tonight. I didn't put in the coconut flakes but used chocolate chips instead. They are a crisp cookie. Great for dunking in tea. I think next time I make them I will use 1/2 shortening and 1/2 butter to give them a softer texture. I liked them. :)

I made these this evening to serve with hot Spiced ginger tea - went well! I agree with the first reviewer, Carol, that these are for sure a crisp cookie that is great with tea/coffee. I used all the ingredients in the recipe, except that I substituted the shortening with margarine. I baked at 180C for 30 minutes. I made just 1 batch of 6 huge cookies(I dropped a tbsp. of the cookie mixture into the greased baking tray and so, the cookies that resulted were giant sized) :) My 6 huge cookies are equivalent to 12-14 smaller ones. I have to run now to make another batch and another until I use up all the mixture. This makes a whole LOT of cookies:)
