This recipe does not call for eggs, so if you add eggs you will not have the same outcome that you would have if you follow the directions, which do not call for ANY eggs. My family has been making these cookies for generations and the recipe holds up just fine, without the eggs.

I am going to make these - I have never made a cookie without eggs. Also I would appreciate a picture of them. I will submit my results - I have been looking for a coconut meltaway and this looks like it might fit the bill. All the butter and shortening! Wow

Wonderful cookies. I forgot to write a review and have made them numerous times. The only thing I changed was to add less sugar and they turned out the same. A keeper for sure. Thank you.

Excellent! No eggs needed, I feel in touch with my heritage. :D I made these for my Christmas tins and everyone loved them - plus, they made boat loads! Thanks for posting this!

These Cookies are awesome. I passed them out during a presentation in Grad School on Sweden. Everyone still talks about them. My mom loved them, and I am going to make some more for the holidays. They were fine without eggs. The recipe calls for no eggs, so don't use eggs. Thanks for the recipe!!

LOVE these cookies!!! DO NOT ADD EGGS, sounds strange, I know, but they are not necessary. These are a new favorite at my house!

These came out great! They were super easy to make (without eggs). I ended up sugaring them with granulated maple sugar that I had splurged on and was waiting for a good occasion to use. People are getting these cookies for Christmas!

There are no eggs called for in this recipe. I don't think this is right. I discovered this after I had started making the cookies so I improvised and added 4 eggs. The cookies turned out OK. They had a good taste.
