These cookies have a great oatmeal taste, are easy to make and have that great crispy on the outside, chewey on the inside texture that I love in cookies! I found it wasn't necessary to flatten them out with a fork, they spread out fine all by themselves. These are a keeper! I think they would also be great with a hint of nutmeg added.

Delicious! Not too sweet and not too coconutty...just right. Their crispy texture is a nice change from the chewier/"busier" (nuts, chips, raisins, etc.) type cookies I've been making of late. Just because I really like to try and cut down on fat, the next time I make them I will try my favorite trick of subbing some applesauce for the shortening. I'll let you know, but in the meantime my DH and I are crunching nicely along. Thanks for sharing PanNan!

Perfect! These cookies were so delicious! I, too, found that there was no need to flatten the cookies as they spread out nicely on their own. I really liked the addition of Rice Krispies which added the perfect amount of "crunch". I think these would be fun to try at Christmas time with the seasonal red and green Rice Krispies to add a colorful touch. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I plan to make it again soon!

These were delicious! I was tempted to add some nuts and chocolate chips and am glad I didn't. They are crisp on the outside and soft inside. My daughter had one and came back for more, saying they were addicting. Thanks for sharing.

How do you spell addictive!!! These cookies are wonderful so I must add my accolades to the rest. I did everything as the recipe stated and have been rewarded with some of the best cookies I have ever eaten. Next time I might try to add some cinnamon or nutmeg, but these were great just as is!! Thanks!

Really good cookie. Mine came out a little crumbly so next time I make these I am going to try using frozen coconut thawed, instead of the coconut flakes, it will give more moistness to the them I think.

I have been making these for years. Only change is I add dried cranberries (about 6 ounces) and have recently added dried cranberries with orange essence. I didn't think these could get any better until I added those! All those that eat these say how addicting they are and have called them "crack cookies" I have made these with Smart Balance and with Butter. Both are equally as good, YUM!

These are a wow!! I did cream the sugar and butter before adding the eggs and dry ingredients. Also, I ground a little nutmeg into it. No time for pictures, the family devored them. 5+ stars!

I used butter, too, and the cookies turned out great. Might try adding chocolate chips next time.
