Wonderful cookies! YUM! These were a huge hit with my family. Thanks!
I was expecting a mounds which to me is much more like a macaroon but that isn't what I got. Not that these are bad cookies just not what I was looking for. I found the dough to be crumbly and a little hard to roll into balls and the extra coconut didn't stick to the balls so I found that to be more trouble than it was worth.
These are great cookies! Slightly crispy on the outside , chewy on the inside. I'm sorry I made only half a batch (not enough coconut for a full batch)They mix up in no time and are very easy to make. They are addictive little buggers! Thanks for posting this U.C.!! *ETA Made again decorating with a skiff of melted semi sweet chocolate ... YUM!
I made alot of christmas cookies this year and these are my by far my favourites. I love that the recipe makes 36 large, thick, crisp, chewy, coconut cookies. Absolutely delicious with a cup of tea. They look like a big golden white snowball. UnknownChef86 these are the best. Thank you so much for sharing.
These cookies are very good, though I found I had to bake them 10 to 15 minutes longer than stated. This may just be a problem with my oven or my understanding of how the cookies should turn out. I wasn't sure if the cookies should color at all, but decided to leave them in the oven until they were light golden. This has resulted in a rather firm and chewy cookie, which my husband adores. Thank you very much for posting this recipe. I can see a future of frequent requests for it. BTW, the yield seems right - I made half a recipe and got 18. — First posted Apr 3, 2005, spelling corrected and posted again.
The ladies at church LOVED this cookie. Very good to eat with tea or coffee.
These are BIG hit with my family!
