As with all of your recipes, these were excellent! I added a little cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter as well as a splash of almond flavoring. My DH doesn't like coconut and nuts, so I left those out and put in about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips instead. I mixed the cream with a bit of sugar and splash of vanilla and dipped my fingers in that to flatten the cookies. I cooked them for 7 minutes on the bottom rack and 7 and a half to 8 minutes on the top and they were perfect. Light and airy. Fabulous!
