    Kater's Note:

    If you like coconut, you'll love these cookies! After making them the first time, they were established as a favorite. Very easy to make, and even easier to eat. The recipe comes from Nick Malgieri's book Cookies Unlimited.

      Absolutely delish! I covered mine with piped chocolate and that added a needed chocolate fix I had a craving for, but the cookies were fantastic on their own! I absolutely loved these, and they're now a family favorite; even among my boyfriend, who doesn't really like coconut! Thanks for a keeper :)

      I made a few substitutes, doubling the cookies and using 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of 1/2 sugar; added 1/4 teas coconut extract and also some toasted almonds and chocolate chips. These came out amazing and tasted just like chocolate covered macaroon! YuM!

      Five stars from my coconut loving daughter! She asked for a coconut cookie but she wanted to really taste the coconut, not just have it as part of the flavors. This is it!
