I made these cookies to enjoy at our annual family birthday bash..lots of September birthdays in our family! My Dad, who loves oatmeal and coconut, as well as my whole family enjoyed them as well! I did add about 1 cup of coconut, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.. the cookies were really chewy and delicious. Thanks for a great recipe! Hazeleyes
These cookies have great texture and flavor. Sooooo good warm! When cooled, they stay chewy and fairly soft. They really do spread out. I spaced mine 2" apart as written and some of them still touched each other. Thanx for sharing this recipe; it's a keeper!
