very nice flavour but I had a problem with them crumbling, they did bake up nicely but are very delicate to handle and crumble very easily. As others have said they do burn very easily and the 12 to 15 minute bake time is too much, my second batch were done in 11 minutes and were perfect but still crumbled.

These are ABSOLUTELY beautiful cookies: thin, chewy with crisp edges. I mixed a little cocoa powder into the dough and used chocolate chips instead of raisins. Also, I dry-roasted the coconut before mixing it into the dough--this makes the coconut smell even more aromatic. :)

These are addicting! Delicious and lacy! I would highly suggest baking the cookies in an UNHEATED oven, not preheated. This diminshes the chance of burning these delicate cookies. Wasn't planning to make with chocolate chips, but ran out of raisins, so I used about 1/3 c. of chips to compensate. Also used old fashioned oats but didn't seem to alter the texture. Bake only about 10-15 minutes but no longer. Cool on wire rack for about 5 minutes.
